Top-hatted pedestrians and horse-drawn traffic pass over Blackfriars Bridge in London
Non-Fiction 1896 1 mins Silent
This 'actuality' film of Blackfriars Bridge in London was taken by pioneer Victorian R.W. Paul in July 1896, with his camera positioned at the southern end looking northwards over the Thames. It was screened as part of his Alhambra Theatre programme shortly afterwards - certainly no later than 31 August, as it's included in a printed programme of that date (as Traffic on Blackfriars Bridge). Two or three of the pedestrians seem aware of the camera's presence.
