The Innocents 1962

1 mins United Kingdom

Manufactured by Ferdinando Innocenti of Milan, the Lambretta motor scooter was the vehicle of choice for Mods in the 1950s. The Bromley club ‘The Innocents’ formed in 1957 at a time when numerous Lambretta clubs were springing up across the UK. The iconic scooters and dexterous manoeuvres of the club riders are shown off to great effect by the birds-eye-view camerawork employed in this film.

London’s Screen Archives enables Londoners see their past come alive on film. Managed by Film London, we are a unique network of historic film collections that cares for, collects and screens heritage film across the city. Together we preserve London’s rich film heritage from feature films to home movies, public information films, newsreels, and records of the capital’s many different industries.
