    Sportsmen raise funds for St. Bartholomew's Hospital. London.

  • Description

    Promotional event; part of fundraising effort for Bart's (St. Bartholomew's) Hospital.


    Group of people standing on pavement under banner: 'Sportsmen Old Sportsmen New Back the Ballot So Should You'. MS a big tough man; maybe a boxer; wearing shorts and no shirt; one in riding costume; one in white wig; a few in top hats and Edwardian coats; and some wear business suits; there are also 2 nurses. Shots of one of the men talking to the shirtless tough-looking man; who is covered with tattoos.

    Next; an old-fashioned coach driving through park with sign on top. Following it another coach with a lot of these men sat on top. Coaches stop and people descend. They and others gather round as the nurses show a tall box with a lot of writing on it for donations. It looks as if they are inserting coins given them by spectators.
