Turn Out of the Dundee Fire Brigade 1901

United Kingdom

Some unexpected framing in the two sequences of this film takes the fire engines out of shot when first glanced, but they make a dramatic reappearance moments later. The man carrying what looks like a Gladstone bag is probably one of Mitchell and Kenyon's showman collaborators as he's positioned at the street corner at the beginning of each shot. In another clue, he is dressed more smartly.
