A pack of beagles are assembled for a hunt by their trainers and a huntsman

Amateur film 1898 2 mins Silent


This film of the hounds assembling before a hunt is a simple affair taken from a single camera position. Alas, we know nothing about which hunt it shows or where it was taken. William Henry Youdale was a talented amateur filmmaker from Cockermouth who left us several films from the late 1890s. The meeting of the Hunt was a rural spectacle popular in early cinema.
