  • Description

    Item title reads: "Dickens' Anniversary. Mr Edwin Drew - last survivor of the Dickens society - places wreath on great novelist's tomb."

    MS Mr. Edwin Drew (last survivor of Dickens Society) holding a wreath. A very solemn looking woman stands beside him - probably his wife, plus others in their Sunday best. Camera pans across the group.

    MS Mr. Drew and party walking through grounds of Westminster Abbey presumably to place the wreath on the grave of Charles Dickens.

    Note: there is a roll on Beta copy - this cannot be corrected. No footage lost.
