  • Description

    Empire Day Children;s ceremony. Location of events unknown.

    Holidays; pageants. Empire Day celebrations; a children's ceremony. Girls all dressed in white walk in a procession representing various countries; the bigger girls carry flags; while the smaller ones hold streamers from the corners of the flags; holding them in place in the breeze. Girls stand on platform holding flags while other girls watch. More of procession; including as the last flag; USA Stars & Stripes; with little boys following. Kids in costumes in parade. Then another shot of stage; with American flag held up. (Maybe the idea is flags of anywhere that's ever been a part of the British Empire...?) Ritual.
