    No titles. Strike delays opening of Ideal Home Exhibition.

    Olympia, London.

    General views of exhibition hall at Ideal Home Exhibition showing the fountain and people standing around amid rubbish on the ground. Three girls in peasant costume walk past camera. There is rubbish and half-finished stands everywhere. Shots of men working to get the exhibition ready for opening. Commentator explains the exhibition was still not finished by preview day due to strikes by workers over pay conditions.

    A woman in an ornate and exotic costume - looks like a Queen Bug or Beetle - walks past camera and turns around. L/S of main hall with people wandering about, and the place still not finished!
