  • Short Summary

    Opening ceremony of sports meeting with piping band and child dancers.

  • Description

    Titles read: 'Glasgow. Grand International Sports Meeting.'

    Scotland.

    Piping / military band march past stand full of spectators at sports ground - seems to be opening ceremony of the sports meeting. They are followed by polo players (?) on foot, people in civilian clothes and rugby players, with some people carrying flags. Looks like a very grim day, weatherwise.

    M/S of a small boy in a sailor suit doing a good hornpipe on a platform, accompanied by a bagpipe player. Looks like it has been raining and is quite a cold day. A little girl with long plaited hair does traditional Scottish (?) dancing on the same platform.
