  • Description

    Full titles read: "Miss Earhart - ... the Atlantic girl flyer... herself a social worker,... has great reception during visit to Toynbee Hall & other London social centres."

    London.

    M/S of Amelia Earhart walking out of Toynbee Hall, followed by several other people and watched by a line of boy scouts and onlookers. She shakes hands with an elderly lady, then is suddenly surrounded by children - she looks a little uncomfortable as they close in around her! Nice C/U of Earhart signing something for an autograph hunter. Various shots of her posing with the group of children and chatting to them as American flags appear in the background.

    M/S of Earhart placing a bouquet of roses at the Edith Cavell memorial.
