Daily Image | Pearly Kings and Queens

Daily Image – the origin of the Pearly Kings and Queens is a man called Henry Croft who in the 19th century drew attention to his charity activities by wearing a suit with buttons sown on them. His funeral in 1933 was attended by 400 followers and they eventually formed groups of Pearly Kings and Queens who continued Henry’s fund raising activities.
