  • Description

    Full title reads: "Result of Sweepstake. The Lord Mayor of Dublin lays foundation stone of the new wing of St. Ulstan's Hospital."

    Dublin, Eire, Southern Ireland, Republic of Ireland.

    The Lord Mayor of Dublin is presented with a ceremonial trowel. A foundation stone, engraved in Gaelic, is lowered into place and the Lord Mayor begins to tap it with the trowel. A short (mute) speech is made with various dignitaries looking on.

    N.B. Presumably from the title this new wing was being built with proceeds from the Irish Hospitals Sweepstake - a kind of national Lottery.

Animals are often the forgotten army of World War I. They displayed unwavering courage even when exposed to extreme conditions. British Pathé pay tribute to these forgotten warriors.

British Pathe captured many extraordinary events on film over its 80 year history but sometimes the cameras were switched on when tragedy struck.
