Horse-drawn Traffic in Euston Rd
A close brush with the precursor to the number 73 bus in Victorian London.
1899 1 mins Silent
This film, possibly taken on the Euston Road looking east from the junction with Woburn Place, shows heavy traffic of a different era. The cameraman is making the most of the busy road, positioning the apparatus close enough that the approaching vehicles rapidly fill the frame as they rush past – an effect so familiar to early cinema audience that it was satirised in films such as The Countryman and the Cinematograph. After a close brush with the precursor to the number 73 bus (destination Hyde Park Corner) the camera records several other carriages passing.
