  • Description

    Royalty. King George V & Queen Mary visit Welbeck - exact location of events unclear.

    Procession on street in rain; street decorated with flags; streamers etc. Group of young women in white uniforms - probably nurses sit on bench type seating in a stand. Some wear sweaters; coats; etc. Then shot all in white with coats off. Pan of group waving. Pan on more of crowd. Very clear shots of lots of smiling faces.

    Past the nurses again. - they could be factory workers I suppose. Sign in front of them - Long Live the King & Queen. Another slow pan on crowd - this time closer. People line a road cheering as royals drive past. We get a glimpse of the royals inside the second car. A band of Navy cadets & young women in Naval type uniforms stand in semicircle playing a welcome. Little boy in sailor suit stands in middle. LS Brick buildings says on side in large letters Welcome the King & Queen. Pan left on other decorated building; sign in shape of shield: Long Live the King and Queen. C/U 2 unknown men shake hands. C/U another man. Celebrations Patriotism; etc. Sign on large building seems to read "The Welsbach Lighting Co" or it could be Weisbach?"

    Note: I think the title which states that this is a royal visit to Welbeck may be incorrect. Does anyone recognise the location or people featured in this film? JH - 2003.

  • This film was taken at Buckhold Road, Wandsworth, London outside the Welsbach Light Co's factory which made gas mantles for domestic and street lighting. The occasion was the post-coronation visit of the King and Queen to meet South London schoolchildren in the grounds of the Royal Hospital for Incurables on Monday 26 June 1911. This film shows the royal car on both the outward and return journeys and, given the prominence given to the factory, staff and management may have been commissioned by the Welsbach company.

Verbal warfare at its best. Here are some of history's greatest retorts and snarling insults. These people certainly didn't mince their words!
