London on Parade - Scenes of London, on the River, in the Streets, the Shops and Markets

'The film shows the City, where the great financial houses stand; the Thames, carrying the stream of the world’s trade; Covent Garden, the famous fruit and flower market; the daily parade of business men and women to their offices, to the shops and to the great markets; theatres, cinemas, and the fashion parades.
Organised pageantry also has a place in the film – the Lord Mayor’s Show, the Trooping of the Colour, the Judge’s Procession, and a Guildhall Reception for the King and Queen.' [1]
