Church Parade of the Boys' Brigade in Birmingham 1902

4 mins United Kingdom

As well as the parade itself, this lively film conveys the heady atmosphere of a teeming Birmingham city centre in which pedestrians and horse-drawn buses jostle for space. The film was screened as part of a compilation of 'locals' at the Curzon Hall in July 1902, an event billed in the press as "A Stupendous Show... the Largest and Finest Collection of Animated Pictures ever seen in Birmingham."

The Boys' Brigade was founded in Glasgow in 1883 as a religious and patriotic movement, and informed the development of Baden Powell's Scout Movement.
