  • Description

    Item title reads: "Britain the consumer - Egypt the producer. King Fuad welcomed during tour of centre of cotton industry."

    Lancashire

    King Fuad, wearing fez and overcoat, walks along with other visitors and management towards camera, inside a cotton mill, where there are waiting crowds of mill workers. They move through an archway constructed of cotton bales under a banner reading, 'Welcome to King Fuad from Horrockes'. They walk through cheering crowds and the King waves. The King stops beside a machine, could be a huge loom, and an operator pulls strands of wool from the machine and throws it to a visitor. Mill girls smile broadly in the background. The King continues his tour with staff explaining the machinery.
