    Unidentified mute item possibly showing the people of Holland celebrating the birth of Princess Juliana's baby.

  • Description

    No title.

    Possibly the Hague, Holland.

    M/S of a windmill, various shots as nurses hand out cakes (?) to people at a long table. M/S of two ladies dancing around a brazier. M/S of boys putting their cakes in a bag. M/S of big torch blazing. M/S of neon writing flashing across a screen at night, with torches around it. L/S of crowd waving Dutch flags. M/S of lights in the shape of two storks rocking a cradle with a crown over the top. Various shots of torches blazing and buildings lit up as people celebrate.

    Cataloguer's note: the soundtrack to this item is missing, it is not listed in the official issue sheet for 38/71 the can number may be incorrect. There is currently no paperwork to indicate what the item is about, but it appears to be a celebration of the birth of Princess Juliana's baby, and not Queen Wilhelmina as the title suggests.
