Queen Victoria's Diamond Jubilee - Apsley House
Unusually detailed shots of the Jubilee procession
1897 1 mins Silent
While other film companies might have favoured camera positions allowing them to gain up close and personal images of the procession, this big wide frame was filmed on a special large-format camera, capturing both the sheer extent of the pomp and circumstance as well as vivid detail. There were three such cameras positioned along the route, but only this sequence of film survives. Perched on the steps of Apsley House, cameraman John Le Couteur captured a fantastic view of the procession as it turns from Constitution Hill towards Piccadilly.
