  • Short Summary

    Great film shows the opening of the new King George V Bridge in Glasgow, and the first people to walk across it.

  • Description

    Full titles read: '"First Footers" - Lord Provost Sir David Mason leads official party across new King George V Bridge after opening ceremony.'

    Glasgow, Scotland.

    M/S of a group of men, including Lord Provost Sir David Mason, gathering in front of a tape stretched across the road at the start of the new King George V Bridge. The Lord Provost cuts the ribbon to open the bridge and the group walk across it, to be followed by a large crowd of people. Great high angle L/S looking down onto the bridge as crowds of people swarm across it.

    I love this film! Simple event, but quite stirring and nicely edited!
