Description

Newsreel compilation featuring several different items. A group of civic dignitaries proclaims the start of the 1902 Preston Guild, and there is footage from the Trade and Civic processions. Two hot-air balloons are seen in Moor Park with one ascending (flown by Percival Spencer), and the film ends with the Countess of Derby at the opening of the Preston Infirmary.
