Great Yorkshire Show at Leeds (1902)

The well-dressed Edwardian ladies and gents of the county tour the annual agricultural show.

Non-Fiction 1902 7 mins Silent


The filmmakers appear more interested in the female visitors than the actual farming exhibits at the Yorkshire Agricultural Society's annual display. Images of a lady reclining in a hammock and children on swings are favoured over the livestock and machinery that would have been the main event for many. A film of the previous year's event in Bradford includes horse jumping and show animals.
