    A look at some of the children from Deptford lucky enough to be invited to Duchess of Albany's Ball.

  • Description

    London.

    Intertitle: "THE KIDDIES OF DEPTFORD for whom the Duchess of Albany is organising the great Ball at Devonshire House on April 14th."

    M/S of seven toddlers sitting on the curb smiling shyly at the camera - they are very scruffy, children of extremely poor families.

    M/S of two nurses attending to rows of babies in wicker cots and high chairs. C/U of a young nurse squatting next to a cot with two babies in, a toddler stands beside her. The nurse holds a teddy out for one of the babies.

    M/S of seven toddlers in a play pen, one little boy is racing from one end of the pen to the other, bouncing himself off the rails. Nice panning C/U shot of children sitting in a row.
