    Lord Mayor gets into coach at Guildhall on Empire Day in London.

  • Description

    London.

    Celebrations for Empire Day at the Guildhall. Side view of the Lord Mayor getting into his coach, assisted by officials in wigs and ornate, traditional costume. A large sceptre is handed to the Mayor when he is inside the coach.

    We then see schoolchildren coming through an arched doorway (of Guildhall?). The girls are in white dresses and boaters, the boys in dark suits, plus-fours and some wear school caps.

    Modified WPA record.
