    Various shots of crowds and game - 2nd Test Match 1926.

  • Description

    Lord's cricket ground, London.

    "Many enthusiasts had waited all night". Nice shots of queues of people waiting to get into the match. Policemen control the crowds. "Collins wins the toss." Good shot of Collins tossing coin with crowds watching. "England takes the field" - we see English players leaving the pavilion. L/S of the game. Panning shot of crowds. More shots of game. Nicely shot material. "A wonderful slow-motion record." - some slow motion shots of batsmen taking shots. Panning shot of large crowds - many with knotted handkerchiefs on their heads. "Jack Gregory (Bowled) Larwood."

    Similar footage follows - seems to be an alternative version of the story. Seems to be mostly the same footage with a few extra shots. "Warren Bardsley (Veteran and Hero)" is featured in L/S and C/U.

    Cuts follow. Similar footage to cut stories. Some nice extra shots of queues and crowds.
