Day School Sports at Park Avenue in Bradford (1902)

Barrels of laughs and sackfuls of fun at a school sports event in Edwardian West Yorkshire.

Non-Fiction 1902 13 mins Silent


Filmed on 22 July 1902 at a sports ground on Bradford's Horton Park Avenue, this school sports day provided the perfect opportunity for exhibitor Sidney Carter to bag a large audience for the screening a few days later. As well as the children and their teachers, proud fathers would pay to relive little Tommy's obstacle-race triumph, doting aunties to witness darling Dora's prize at skipping.
