  • Short Summary

    Public Schoolboy cricket match at Lord's Cricket Ground.

  • Description

    Lords, London.

    No main title for this item. According to old database record the title would have read: "Governors, maters, sisters, brothers, sweethearts and chums, come in their thousands to see their heroes battle in the Public Schoolboys' Test".

    Shot of well dressed crowd in stands - lots of top hats. Camera pans across crowd. L/S of match in progress.

    Lots of cuts at end of the cut story including players coming on to pitch, crowds milling around, shots of game, nice shots of toffs having picnic lunches in their carriages, crowds in stands.

    This may be a mixture of material from G 1310 and G 1328.

    Note: this item is in cricket can number 65.
