A statue of Edward Carson, giant of Ulster Unionism, is unveiled at Stormont

Non-Fiction 1930 1 mins Silent


Northern Ireland’s first prime minister unveils the statue of Edward Carson, leading figure of Irish and then Ulster Unionism. To this day the statue bestrides the grounds of Stormont: home when this film was taken of Northern Ireland’s Protestant-dominated parliament, today of its power-sharing assembly. The film is a story from an issue of the newsreel Gaumont Graphic.
