• Short Summary

    Boys at a Dr Barnardos home welcome their Christmas pudding with bagpipes.

  • Description

    Full title reads: "Clapham. 'Spreading a little happiness!' Churls - indeed - are they who do not thrill to this happy picture of Xmastide at Dr Barnardos Boys' Home."

    Clapham, London,

    Boys playing bagpipes march down past ranks of their fellows who are waving branches of pine trees. In the midst of the bagpipes is a cook carrying a Christmas pudding.

    The boys give a display of Scottish folk dancing as they stand around the woman holding the pudding.

    The pipers lead the pudding into the building followed by the boys.
