King discards King, keeps Queen

Photo manipulation has been going on since at least the 1860s.

The 1939 photo on the left, showing Queen Elizabeth and Canadian Prime Minister William Lyon Mackenzie King in Banff, Alberta, was doctored to remove King George VI from the original shown on the right.

The finished product was used on an election poster for the Prime Minister, who evidently thought it would be more powerful without the King.
