Description

Single frame 16mm footage shot of Margaret Thatcher's funeral. The film was toned in blue iron salt solution (prussian blue toner) for 11 hours. From an early Kodak toning manual: 'The longer the film is left in the solution the more unacceptable and harsher the final tones'. Sound recorded on the day of the funeral by Sally Golding.
