Panning shot follows a man in a bowler hat as he strides purposefully through the Palace gates, he passes a policeman who appears to give him directions.

    A few seconds of spacing follow.

    Another version of the same story follows - shots are the same or very similar to the original. There are more shots of politicians coming and going through the Palace gates, some on foot, some in cars. Some shots show press photographers leaping in front of the M.P.s as they come and go - captures the excitement and sense of occasion very well.

Various panning shots of the crowds gathered around the gates, more politicians are seen coming and going.

    Note: some shots unsteady - item could be unedited cuts. Please also refer to records for - GENERAL ELECTION NIGHT - in G 1134, for more shots of politicians coming and going from the Palace in the wake of the 1924 election.
