    Hyde Park.

    Various shots of the Easter Parade in Hyde Park. Girls in chiffon dresses and Easter bonnets sit in a horse drawn carriage and wave to the crowd. Spectators wave at the camera. A woman walks along wearing a large hat decorated with flowers and feathers. A man in morning dress walks along with a girl in a black hat and bell-shaped black dress. C/U of her face and hat - it has black sequins dangling from it. Another girl in a white and black spotted dress wears a coolie-style chiffon hat.

    Various shots of people in old-fashioned costume riding along on old double decker buses, carriages and veteran cars. Pearly Kings and Queens ride along on a float. C/U of a man in the crowd taking a photograph.

    Elsewhere in Hyde Park we see people sitting at tables and drinking tea. Two girls sit on a bench drinking mugs of tea. C/U of a woman's legs as she goes walking by. A spiv type man in a pinstriped suit has an ogle at her legs. Two other girls watch Pathe cameraman Ced Baynes go walking by and whistle at him. He looks perturbed and rushes off while the girls sit giggling.
