“Remarkably distinct," cheered the Durham Chronicle when this film screened in the city’s Drill Hall: "many local ladies and gentlemen were easily recognised... it was a splendid reproduction and it has nightly been received with applause." No doubt such acclaim would have pleased Mitchell & Kenyon, who always aimed to capture as many faces as possible to attract customers to their film shows.
