    No title, paperwork reads - The King's Illness - the Queen deputised for His Majesty King George V at opening of Spitalfields Market. "God Save the King." London

    L/S of Queen Mary holding some flowers and looking at a fruit stall, she makes her way down the other stalls, while people stand around. M/S as she walks through the middle with the mayor and other officials. M/S as she poses by a fruit stall then moves off.

    The camera pans across water and docks, a bulldozer swings around and digs out earth. M/S as a train draws up pulling trucks full of earth, the camera pans across the conveyor belt dropping earth off the end.

    Note: this record also incorporates 'The Shannon Scheme' in G 1558 from 01:07:42 to the end.
