    Good footage of crowds filmed during King George V's visit to Scotland.

  • Description

    King with Scottish workers.

    Scotland.

    King George V visits Scotland - crowd shots. First CU car moving past. Crowd in street. Group of children approach camera; grinning. More come; pushing up; filling in spaces; adults too. People waving; some jumping up. Pan across crowd - many people holding up babies or toddlers. Working-class. Closer shot people in crowd. Group of people posing for pic. Several pairs dressed alike - looks like gathering of twins! More shots panning across crowd - very good shots- individual faces clear.

    King, in military uniform, is seen getting out of and into car and being driven off. More crowd shots showing people smiling and looking into camera - really nice footage.
