The Coronation Exhibition celebrated the 1911 coronation of George V and was held at the Great White City & Stadium. The stadium was a last-minute addition when London took over hosting the 1908 Olympics. The White City was named for the white, marble-effect building exteriors. It included 120 exhibition buildings and 20 pavilions designed in an Oriental style, with domes and arabesque arches. They were linked by a network of roads, bridges, and waterways. There were also a number of cafés and funfair rides, including the Flip-Flap machine that carried riders 200 feet (60 metres) up into the air!
This type of day ticket to was issued only to groups or parties and was valid for a single admission on a specified day.
