Magnificent Reproductions of the Great Yorkshire Show in Bradford (1901)

Great fashions, hefty livestock, horse jumping and a few spectacular falls on display at an agricultural show.

Non-Fiction 1901 15 mins Silent


The Yorkshire Agricultural Society's annual agricultural show already had a 64-year history by 1902, which helps explain the remarkably slick organisation on display here. The fabulous women's fashions give the proceedings something of a Ladies Day feel, and the whole event is obviously a distinguished occasion. Contemporary reviews highlight the candid portraits of well-known local dignitaries.
