  • Description

    Thought to be Selected Originals from late 1940s material.

    Stockholm, Sweden. Sweden celebrates 40th Anniversary of King Gustav's Coronation.

    Swedish voiceovered material.

    High angle long shot of a wide flagged road with an imposing building at the far end (possibly Stockholm cathedral) taken from a balcony which can be seen in the foreground. Royal Palace guards marching in the palace yard. Spectators waiting to see King Gustav arriving to the cathedral. A policeman is seen in front of them. King Gustav shaking hands with the conductor of a choir which sings at celebration service in the cathedral. Children waving to the King. King waves to the crowd before re-entering his car - presumably after the service. Police saluting as he drives off. King's car passes lined up soldiers in the palace yard. Soldiers carry a dipped flag.

    Possibly connected with 48/1 - MD.
