    Horse racing at night in Longchamps & Crowning of Gypsy King in Warsaw.

  • Description

    RACING AT LONGCHAMPS

    Longchamps, France.

    Various shots of the horses racing and people watching the race at night - not much is seen, some light on course, more on stands and boxes. Various shots of the fireworks, presumably after the race.

    A GIPSY CORONATION IN WARSAW

    Warsaw, Poland.

    Several shots, some close up shots, of Romany Gipsies gathering. Men wearing evening suits and top hats - quite unusual. Women in traditional clothing. This is the ceremony of crowning of the Gypsy King. Orthodox priest blesses a man wearing crown and robe. Gipsy King sits on his throne, two men behind him.

    Gypsies gathered around fire having a party. They are singing and dancing - pity there is no sound.
