Huge crowds throng outside St George's Hall Bradford on a wet February day in 1901, waiting to see a film show of 300 'animated pictures' by the Edison Co. Young boys are much to the fore (this may be the queue for the cheap seats), enthusiastically playing up for the camera. Newspaper reports tell us that this very film of goings on outside the hall, would later play inside as part of the show.
