Scene Outside a Factory 1902

United Kingdom

This workplace is busy with men and carts, some of them lingering for a chat, among them are bowler-hatted men, lads in caps and work clothes, and just a few women. It's a charming film with some lively detail - but sadly not the right kind of details to help us (so far) to identify the location. A horse-drawn cart carrying several large barrels may be a clue that the site is a brewery.
