Victoria's funeral procession passes through central London, drawing well-dressed crowds

Non-Fiction 1901 1 mins Silent


In these shots taken for the Hepworth & Company, the cameraman has occupied a choice position, capturing crowds on either side of the road. The viewing platforms and police presence in the crowd suggest that those present - including the cameraman - may have waited a long time to catch a glimpse of the passing coffin.
