  • Short Summary

    Parade for the election of Sir William Neal as Lord Mayor of London.

  • Description

    Full title reads: "London. 'As in Dick Whittington's Time'. City workers see Pageant of past as City Fathers, in full regalia and carrying nosegays, proceed to Guildhall to elect Sir W. Phene Neal - London's 742nd Lord Mayor."

    Guildhall, London.

    Buglers play fanfare. Tilt down exterior of grubby looking Guildhall. Various dignitaries of the City of London walk in robes and regalia carrying small posies of flowers.

    The New Lord Mayor of London with his retinue of men carrying the ceremonial sword and mace walk past.

    MS of new Mayor Sir William Phene Neal and the old mayor - not clear which is which.

    A carriage arrives and takes them away.
