An amateur film showing highlights of King George V's Silver Jubilee celebrations and parade filmed in London in 1935.
Large crowds have gathered to watch the carriage and chauffeur driven royal Silver Jubilee procession making its way past William Younger and Co. and Hope Brothers on the corner at 46 Ludgate Hill towards St Paul's Cathedral for the Thanksgiving Service. Buildings are adorned in bunting and union flags and spectators wave at the passing procession.
Later scenes include close-ups of the public and participants after the procession and the front of St Martins within Ludgate church and crowds of well dressed men and women gathered on the steps of St Paul's Cathedral.
The film closes with a moving shot from a vehicle along Oxford street past Selfridges towards Marble Arch, recording the buildings adorned in bunting, flags and decorations. The camera focuses on a distant point showing a large statue of Britannia on the top of the Selfridges department store roof.
