Gold and diamond magnate Solomon Joel hosts a gathering at his magnificent Maiden Erlegh Estate near Reading

Amateur film 1926 11 mins Silent


Join diamond and gold magnate Solomon Joel, posing here with his dogs, for a gathering at his Maiden Erlegh estate in Earley, near Reading. He spent many years and large parts of his fortune turning it into the magnificent estate we can see in this amateur film, with extensive gardens, an aviary and even an Italian marble winter garden. It's unclear what the occasion for this ostentatious gathering was, but it was possibly related to his nearby stud farm, visited here by his guests.
