  • Description

    Full title reads: "'The Farmers' Mecca' The Royal Agricultural Society's show - the World's greatest - is coming to Warwick this year!"

    Issue sheet reads: "Manchester. The Farmers' Mecca. Duke of Gloucester opens 89th Royal Agricultural Show over 3,000 head of livestock and machinery valued at over 2 million pounds in show-ground over 80 acres."

    Manchester, Lancashire.

    Prince Henry, Duke of Gloucester gets out of a car and is greeted by various people. Shots of the Duke on the veranda of a building with local dignitaries.

    Various shots of bulls, cows, sheep (including an odd long haired breed), and horses. They are obviously being judged in a livestock show or competition.

    N.B. It is not clear if this is the show at Warwick, as suggested by the title card, or in Manchester, as suggested by issue sheet.
