Shakespeare Land 1910

5 mins United Kingdom

This ethereal Edwardian travelogue - one of many produced by Charles Urban's Kineto company -would have surely drawn crowds with its perennially popular Shakespearean theme. The virtually empty roads and the elegantly attired men and women whiling away a sunny afternoon on the banks of the River Avon, along with a few sheep, conjure Edwardian Warwickshire as an idyllic, pastoral place.
