Ten Minutes of Victorian Street Scenes

“Here’s an astonishing Pathe lineup of – almost entirely – Victorian English streetscape. Because the bulk of this was shot in 1896-7, the camera was too bulky to manouvre but too new to be recognised for what it was, lending these scenes an intimacy, almost an anonymity, that Mitchell and Kenyon would neither seek nor enjoy four years later.” (James Hamilton), (1930s Film Rushes from British Pathe – James Hamilton)
