  • Description

    Full title reads: "General Election Night. Thousands throng Trafalgar Square to cheer or boo as results were flashed out."

    London.

    Pan across huge crowd in Trafalgar Square. Large search lights / flood lights illuminate the crowd. The crowd is so tightly packed that people are picked up and lifted over head.

    An illuminated board sponsored by the Daily Mail flashes out results. The Conservatives gain Manchester Rusholme. The board gives results for Conservatives, Liberals and Socialists.

    More shots of the tightly packed crowd.

    Sign flashes out Rossendale - Lab Gain. More scenes of cheering.

    N.B. This film may have been transferred at the wrong speed. I'm also not clear that this is the 1931 election night - MD.
