Parade of the Leeds Police 1900

Leeds' policemen on parade - on horseback and in marching bands.

Non-Fiction 1900 Silent


This early actuality film comprises a single shot of Leeds' policemen on parade. It was customary for films of this era to be brief, though this one also appears to be incomplete. Dating from the pre-cinema era of film, it would have been shown locally – probably in a variety hall or at a fairground. The date of the parade and whether it was part of a bigger event remains unknown.
