  • Description

    Full titles: "GARDEN PARTY AT ST JAMES PALACE [London]"

    M/S of Queen Mary (Princess Mary of Teck) receiving a bouquet of flowers from a young girl. The commentator says that the garden party is being held in aid of the National Council for Maternity and Child Welfare.

    Nice L/S of Queen Mary sitting down holding an umbrella (to keep the sun off as opposed to rain !), numerous little girls walk up to her and present her with a small purse. One girl approaches and hands over the purse but seems confused about when to curtsy so she does it several times. Various more shots of the Queen at the garden party. M/S of the Queen buying a gas filled balloon from a young girl and releasing it skywards.
