“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.”
