  • Short Summary

    The Duke and Duchess of York open a hospital in Liverpool.

  • Description

    Full title reads: "Liverpool's £150,000 Hospital. The Duchess of York - accompanied by the Duke - opens new Samaritan Hospital for Women."

    Liverpool, Merseyside.

    The Duke of York, Prince Albert (later King George VI) and the Duchess of York (later Queen Elizabeth, the Queen Mother) get out of car. They are greeted by a man dressed in black robes, a minister of religion. They are introduced to other ministers as they walk into a church.

    The Duchess walks past some rows of schoolgirls. The Duke and Duchess shake hands with various people. The Duchess opens the doors to the building - presumably the hospital.

    Shots of a large crowd waving enthusiastically.
