  • Description

    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.

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.
