London Street Scenes

Horse-drawn traffic on one of London's busiest thoroughfares

Non-Fiction 1901 1 mins Silent


These evocative, if somewhat timeworn images look to have been shot on the south side of Trafalgar Square, possibly Whitehall. The traffic may be horse-drawn, but it's not so much less frenetic than today's - and alarming, too, for the few bold pedestrians who dare to cross the flow.

The film was made by GA Smith for the Warwick Trading Company.
