Preston Street Scenes 1904

United Kingdom

Horse-drawn trams are the centre of attention in this glimpse of a busy Preston street. A boy dashes fearlessly across in front of one such vehicle, while other travellers weave around the thoroughfare. These include a gent riding a horse, and numerous cyclists - one of whom, a priest, could be a dead ringer for GK Chesterton's fictional amateur detective Father Brown.
