Liverpool Church Parade and Inspection (1901)

Crowds gather to watch hundreds of Edwardian policemen marching through a Liverpool street.

Non-Fiction 1901 4 mins Silent


This film captures both the build-up and the impressive parade itself, involving a brass band and then a lengthy march-past of what must surely have been the entire local police force. As the parade nears its end, three small girls understandably show more interest in the camera, an enthusiasm that quickly spreads to the whole crowd as they wave their hats and cheer.
