• Short Summary

    Unedited material showing activities at the Sunshine Home for the Blind in Wales - Margaret visits.

  • Description

    This is a duplicate copy of item 2719.01 - check for best quality.

    Continued. Mute unedited material. Probably rushes or out-takes of "54/53" news story about the opening of the Welsh Sunshine Home for Blind Babies. Some of these shots are repeats of shots already seen but filmed by different cameramen - presumably Pathe had several cameramen covering the story.

    The royal cavalcade, Princess arriving, meeting staff or governors, going inside the home, walking in the grounds, being handed a bouquet, Princess leaving.

    Princess walking up to the podium. Man making a speech from the podium. Another man makes a speech (it is a long speech - the Princess looks a bit bored.) Closer shot of him making his speech. Closer shot of the Princess. The Princess is handed a gift which she shows to others on the podium. The Princess walks to the microphone and makes her speech. She gestures for the people on the podium to sit. L/S of the Princess making her speech. Dignitaries and crowd applaud. Vicar makes a speech. Camera pans to show front of the home with spectators watching from the top windows. Margaret steps down from the podium and walks towards the home. End.
