Horse Drawn Traffic

Peer through a window into late Victorian city life, where pedestrians reclaim the streets

Non-Fiction 1896


Even horse drawn traffic had a rush hour, but in this quieter period these late-Victorian pedestrians clearly feel more comfortable in reclaiming the streets. The film is believed to have been made around 1896, and one of its best qualities is how unaware many of the passers-by are of the camera, leaving us as an audience unobserved. The location is currently unknown.
