    Pictured on the left is Premier and Minister of Military Affairs Demetrios Gounaris (in civil attire, tall, moustache and beard, looking at the camera). Thence the footage may be dated within the short period of his administration (February 25th, 1915-August 10th, 1915). The location may be the Field of Mars (Paedhion tou Areos) right in front of the compound that housed the Military School (Schole Evelpidhon, today the location of Athens Court of Law) part of which is visible on the left.
