    Just to let you know there is a very short clip 6-sec approx at the end of this footage above, of Joseph Chamberlain and his wife Mary Endicott Chamberlain in a car out side the Council House Birmingham 7th July 1906.This short clip would have been from the start of the Chamberlain Day 1906. I know this to be ture because I own an original official Chamberlain programme priced at one penny each July 7th 1906. Joseph Chamberlain and his wife where the first car to lead the motor procession shown in the Chamberlain Day 1906 clip. On viewing the Chamberlain Day 1906 footage Joseph Chamberlain is no where to be seen!. Please could this very sort clip of 6-secs approx of Joe be added to the front, just after the start of the reel of the Chamberlain Day 1906 film footage. This would make the Chamberlain Day 1906 film alittle more complete, for it is its rightful place! all part of the same film.

    Hopes the imformation given to you is helpful ?

    Kind regards.
