Lord's Cricket Ground, London.
England and Australian cricket teams walk onto field and pose for press cameras. Crowded stands - including large group of women spectators. Batsmen practising. More shots of the crowd.
Note: nice shots of early 1900 crowd - women wearing hats and eating snacks. Lots of young boys looking at the camera. Crowd seem much more interested in eating their lunch than watching the game!
If you recognise any of the players please let Pathe know.
