Panoramic View of Southport Promenade (1902)
All aboard the charabanc for a trip along an Edwardian promenade.
Non-Fiction 1902 4 mins
Smartly-dressed passengers climb aboard an imposing horse-drawn carriage during a trip to Southport. The picturesque promenade was an appealing spot for Edwardians enjoying some leisure time, and the filmmakers are careful to soak up the atmosphere - the camera sweeps round in an ambitious (for 1902) 180-degree pan to capture the whole spectacle of the pier and its attractions.
