His Worship the Mayor Leaving Lancaster Town Hall (1902)

Mitchell & Kenyon capture the 'lighter' side of Lancastrian officialdom.

Non-Fiction 1902 Silent


Local dignitaries often crop up in Mitchell and Kenyon's films, but this amusing vignette outside Lancaster Town Hall is something of a curio. It's not known whether the short 'comedian' was a local celebrity, but the entertaining interaction would certainly have been staged to enliven AD Thomas's compilation of 'animated pictures', playing at the town's Palace of Varieties in March/April 1902.
