  • Description

    Titles read: "THEIR MAJESTIES TOUR LONDON HOUSING ESTATES".

    Various shots of King George VI (Prince Albert, Duke of York) and Queen Elizabeth (the Queen Mother, Duchess of York) taking a tour around a London housing estate. The Queen stops to talk to a woman standing in her front yard; we pan across the yard to show some long johns hanging on the washing line.

    With the Chairman of the London County Council, the King and Queen go inside a block of flats to talk to the people who live there. Brief shots of living room and cooking facilities in the flats. People hang over the balconies of the flats to wave goodbye to the royals as they continue their tour, followed by their entourage and a crowd of locals.
