  • Description

    Lord Mayor Opens Recruiting Office in London 1914 (?).

    London.

    General view of people crowding around entrance to recruiting office. Union Jack is hung on wall by the door - a few soldiers - officers? - watch volunteer men going inside and seem to be giving them verbal encouragement. Women and children as well as some older men are seen walking past outside or just standing and watching the spectacle.

    Presumably, the Lord Mayor is inside.

    World War One; military.
