  • Description

    A Great Financier - simplicity marked the funeral of the late Lord Rothschild - 1917.

    Location of events unknown - London?

    Horse-drawn carriage containing coffin drives past crowds of people in city street, followed by several cars and horse-drawn carriage.

    Note: not sure which Rothschild this is - could be Nathan Mayer Rothschild who died 31st March 1915, but paperwork says 1917, suggesting it could be Leopold de Rothschild.
