Parade of Widnes School Children (1901)

A multitude of Lancashire schoolchildren is ushered past the camera.

Non-Fiction 1901 2 mins Silent


A crowd of young boys scampers past, mildly shepherded by female teachers. Some more tightly marshalled older groups follow behind, while pairs of young girls, hand in hand, close the parade. The children are in such profusion that we seem to have seen the entire youth of the then Lancashire (now Cheshire) town.
