Footage of kitchen in Stoke Newington that provides food for poor children.
National kitchen - Stoke Newington.
Social services. 'National Kitchen'; established in Stoke Newington; near London's East End; provides food for poor children; c. 1910s. Men in winter coats hats; sponsors of project (?) enter through gate. Mayor in top hat and big medallion standing at gate; greeting the men; with young boys peering through fence in BG. Shot of several children - 3 girls in FG holding large cups or plates; boy peeking round in FG. Small girl crosses in FG holding out her plate like 'Please Sir can I 'ave some more?' - really the whole thing is very Dickensian. A sour-looking girl walks toward cam.
CU girl with long hair messily tied back; holding both a bowl and a mug; in front of iron fence; other kids in BG behind bars of fence; the girl stands still for a few secs then starts to turn; still looking back toward cam. Great shot of a bunch of happy rowdy little urchin boys all screaming and waving their caps in the air and falling into one another. Fun! Next a CU of man in coat and hat.
