    Item title reads: "King Feisal - Visits Lancashire Cotton Mills to see raw cotton from his own country turned into cloth."

    Bolton, Lancashire

    High angle shot of King Feisal and the mayor as they get out of a car and go up some steps. C/U as they walk along with some of the group wearing top hats. King Feisal grins and goes into the mill. The men operate machinery and turn handles. The King poses outside with workers, mill girls dressed in white overalls. M/S outside of crowds lining the street, and they wave as the motor cars leave.

    Note: Good shots inside the mill with the King.

    NB. King Faisal I of Iraq
