  • Short Summary

    Queen Alexandra poses with horse, then is driven through city street in carriage in the rain.

  • Description

    Queen of the Roses - In spite of inclement weather Queen Alexandra makes her annual tour.

    Location of events unknown - London?

    Queen Alexandra walks from entrance to large building to pose beside a horse in harness (probably pulling her carriage). The horse sniffs and licks her hand. She starts to take off her cloak and a man appears to take it from her. She pets the horse then walks off.

    M/S of open carriages driving through city streets - Queen Alexandra in the first one (presumably). Crowds wave from the pavements. Pan across a group of women - some in uniform, some dressed in white - who seem to be standing at a fund-raising stand, with some of them wearing pin trays around their necks. They wave their handkerchiefs for the camera.

    G 485 A.
