    King George V and Queen Mary meet Manchester dignitaries.

  • Description

    Local dignitaries presented to King George V and Queen Mary in Manchester.

    Royalty. King George V and Queen Mary on a veranda. King and Queen walk to end of the balcony; he tips his hat to ladies on the way. Lots of flowers everywhere; including many on the Queen's amazing hat. Shot of King and Queen standing at the top of the steps under hanging flowers; they meet people who come up and bow and curtsey.

    Quite a good array of Georgian fashion. Ladies in huge picture hats with tall feathers. Next to the King is a Mayor (?) who announces people as they come up.

    After meeting people, the Royals walk to the other side of the veranda. The top of a car is visible as it pulls up in front.

    Cut to more shots of King and Queen at top of steps meeting people.
