    Item title reads - Middlesex Hospital is falling down. PRINCE ARTHUR OF CONNAUGHT inspects decayed foundations. £500,000 is urgently needed for rebuilding. London.

    M/S of a man showing Prince Arthur where the bricks are coming out, he looks at one and adds it to the pile at the bottom, a man bends down and looks at some others. M/S of Prince Arthur looking at windows and doors and pointing to them.

    M/S as a wooden structure is secured with chains, M/S as it is lowered downwards, M/S as it is pushed into a hole. M/S as a man digs out a bit of the foundations, others bend down to look, one man measures the hole with a ruler and feels underneath.

    Note: the Prince Arthur mentioned here is probably the son of Prince Arthur, Duke of Connaught. The latter part of this item appears to be cuts.
