Scenes in Hull 1901

United Kingdom

Several Mitchell and Kenyon films are oddly self-referential, capturing advertising for events where the films themselves would later be screened. These scenes flag up an event at Hull's Assembly Rooms, where Pringle's film show was running. The posters are manoeuvred around on a kind of giant mobile sandwich board, apparently promising audiences images of returning soldiers from the Boer War.
