- from our story 'Victoria Station – A History in 33 Photos'
Emperor Haile Selassie, once ruler of rolling Abyssinia, returned, a tragic, defeated figure with downcast eyes. He returned from Geneva where he had made a last bid to secure the League Councils repudiation of Mussolinis claims to sovereignty over Abyssinia.
