    People queuing in a city street - good shots of people fascinated by camera!

  • Description

    A Sporting Chance.

    Location of events unknown.

    Possibly related to rationing food? People stand waiting in line on a city street, all staring at the camera. Working class. Women holding babies. Slow pan down line - many children. A boy is tapping himself on the chest and calling to someone else in the crowd; girl is holding smaller sister's hand. Woman with pram. Little girl holding pet cat; really cute.

    About 1 frame of CU butcher shop. Shot of crowd from above; with vegetable carts alongside and part of awning in FG. Barrow man tips his hat to us several times - it looks quite funny! - SL.
