  • Description

    Item title reads: "Free State Campaign Opens. Wonderful enthusiasm of the huge crowd assembled in the shadow of the old Houses of Parliament as they listen to the great speech on behalf of the Treaty by Mr Michael Collins."

    M/S of large crowd. Hats are waved with great enthusiasm. C/U of Michael Collins making a speech - same footage as in G 857 - Fighting Speech. M/S of crowds being held back. High angle shot of large crowd listening to speakers, many have umbrellas keeping the rain off. High angle of dais upon which Michael Collins is making his speech. Camera pans across crowds.

    This seems to be a longer version of "Fighting Speech" piece.

    Note: This story has been allocated to issue G 857 at some point but was not on the original issue sheet. May belong to another issue.
