Children and local dignitaries at a wartime soup kitchen in London.
National Kitchen, established in Stoke Newington, near London's East End.
Men in winter coats hat (sponsors of project?) enter through gate. Mayor stands at gate greeting the men with young boys peering through fence in background. Shot of several children coming out of soup kitchen - 3 girls in foreground holding large cups or plates, boy peeking round in background.
Nice CU girl holding a bowl and a mug. Great shot of a bunch of happy, rowdy, urchin boys all screaming and waving their caps in the air and falling into one another. CU of smartly dressed man standing in front of fence, he lifts his hat.
American cataloguer's note: the "National Kitchen" helps those on the homefront save coal during World War One by doing less cooking at home. Material could also pass as a soup kitchen to provide food for poor.
