  • Description

    Full title reads: "London. 'As in Dick Whittington's Time' - City workers see pageant of past as City Fathers, in full regalia & carrying nosegays, at the Guildhall - elect Sir Percy Greenaway - London's 744th Lord Mayor."

    Guildhall, London.

    London civic dignitaries walk in small procession. They are carrying nosegays - small posies of flowers.

    Closer shot of the parade - Sir Percy Greenaway walks amongst other figures from the civic life of the City of London. Side view of Sir Percy and others walking into the Guildhall. The ceremonial mace is carried in.

    Four royal buglers play a fanfare.

    Exterior view of the Guildhall. Sir Percy Greenaway - Lord Mayor of London, and others stand outside.

    More shots of the buglers. Two shot of dignitaries.

    The Lord Mayor's coach moves away.

    (Natural sound track only - No commentary)

    NB - Not sure of the timing of this event as Sir Percy appears to have been acting as Lord Mayor in previous newsreels.
