There'll be laughing, singing and music swinging, dancing in the street - Victorian style.

This film was shot by pioneer filmmaker Charles Goodwin Norton, who was also well known for his spectacular magic lantern shows in the pre-film era. The location is currently unidentified, and can you name that tune?
