Description

Amateur views of Hackney in Springtime.

St John's Churchyard with springtime crocuses. Two black nurses in uniform walking through churchyard (presumably from nearby Homerton Hospital). Moreshots of crocuses and a sheltered area with daffodils in the foreground. Men sat on benches talking, children (one in a push chair) with their mother. A view towards St Augustine's Tower and Mare Street beyond. An old man wearing a flat cap sat in a (motorised?) wheelchair, smoking a cigarette, other men in the background sit on benches talking. A woman trimming the edges of the lawn. A magnolia tree in bloom outside front of a white building.
