    Ena Best is crowned 'Queen of the Railways' by Mr J Bromley, MP.

  • Description

    Full titles: "Queen of the Railways - Mr. J. Bromley, M.P. crowns Miss Ena Best ...1928's Queen."

    Manchester.

    Various shots of Mr J Bromley placing a little crown / tiara on the head of Ena Best. She is sitting on a chair on a raised platform in a field, surrounded by other girls and a pageboy in white. Children in fancy dress parade before Ena and curtsey; one girl reads a speech to her. C/U of Ena - she is very pretty, with long hair rather than the fashionable bob of the time.

    Cuts follow that show Ena, uniformed men and crowds of spectators walking across the field.
