  • Description

    This item is a duplicate copy of item 348.02 - check for best quality. This version may have some extra footage at end.

    Lords, London.

    Title: "ETON V. HARROW. 'Guv'nors', Maters, Sisters, Brothers, Sweethearts and Chums, come in their thousands to see their heroes battle in the Public Schoolboys' 'Test'."

    High angled shot of crowds mingling on the cricket pitch at Lords. M/S of a family group - the men all wearing top hats and tails - wandering amongst the crowds. More high angled shot of the crowded pitch. High angled shot of drinks being served at a table under an awning at the edge of the pitch. Panning shot of well dressed men and women perching on parked cars and carriages, presumably families of the schoolboys watching the match.

    Various L/Ss of the match in action.

    Seems to be some cuts spliced on to end of this version (including a couple of upside-down shots!)
