  • Description

    'C'est Pour La France' - Flower Fair held in Trafalgar Square, London, in aid of French wounded.

    Looking along awnings; with boxes stacked on ground; soldier moving a box. CU some upper class types in top hats chatting in street. Woman with parasol and a fur piece (the kind of thing that is basically just a dead animal; head included; hanging over someone's shoulders); she is talking to a man in top hat. Shot of another woman literally grabbing the parasol lady and pulling her over to meet an elderly man.

    Shot of women walking along wearing ribbons and carrying baskets - actually wearing those too; hanging from ribbons round their necks. More shots of people talking - fashionable ladies. GV pan across fountain area in Trafalgar Square; with people sitting on edge of fountain.

    Fund-raising; home front; World War One.

    G 485 A.
