Great Yorkshire Show at Leeds 1902

8 mins United Kingdom

The filmmakers appear more interested in the female visitors than the actual farming exhibits at the Yorkshire Agricultural Society's annual display. Images of a lady reclining in a hammock and children on swings are favoured over the livestock and machinery that would have been the main event for many. A film of the previous year's event in Bradford includes horse jumping and show animals.
