  • Short Summary

    King George V and Queen Mary are greeted by large crowds in Sheffield. 1918 - 1920?

  • Description

    Flash frame titles read: 'Sheffield. The Royal Visit to the centre of the great steel industry.'

    Cheering crowds in streets waving flags and waiting for arrival of King George V and Queen Mary. Men on white horses escort the open, horse-drawn carriage that brings the royals. Troops stand to attention and parade by. King George V takes salute from a dais.

    Queen Mary and King George get back into their coach. Pan across a crowd of schoolchildren and women in the crowd, all wearing white and waving hands and flags, and in the background we can see a cinema ('Cinema House') with a sign outside reading 'The Pathe Pictorial'! (The Pathe Pic cinemagazine started in 1918.) King and Queen walk past applauding crowds and onto dais, where the King salutes.
