Lord Mayor's Show 1914

1 mins United Kingdom

In November 1914, the newsreel cameras were out in force to catch all the pomp of Lord Mayor's Show - the centuries-old tradition in which the newly-elected Lord Mayor of London pledges loyalty to the Crown. Vast crowds came out to glimpse Sir Charles Johnston - seen here descending from the majestic state coach - and to support the parading military personnel, shortly off to war in Europe.
