    The first shot is of the cortege of Collins assembled outside St Vincent's Hospital, St Stephen's Green, where his remains had been brought to. At 0.36 the crowds are assembled outside the hospital. (The Shelbourne Hotel can be seen in the distance, over the trees.) At 0.42 the shot is of the crowds queueing up the street from Dublin City Hall, where he lay in state. Later shots are inside the Rotunda of City Hall.
