    London.

    Title: "Beloved by All - Queen Alexandra - indefatigable in good works - receives Empire's loyal greetings on her 80th birthday".

    Item in tribute to Queen Alexandra, wife of King Edward VII, on her 80th birthday.

    M/S of two rows of nurses waiting outside the entrance to a hospital, the break into applause as Queen Alexandra, accompanied by senior nurses, a smartly dressed gentleman and some ladies in waiting comes out of the building. The Queen walks between the rows of nurses nodding and smiling.

    Note: shot of Queen Alexandra looks as if it was filmed considerably earlier than 1924, judging by youthfulness of Queen and people's clothes it is probably footage from the beginning of the century. AH 2000.
