Queen Victoria's Diamond Jubilee - Paul - York Road - Front of Procession
Carriages full of well-heeled guests continue in Queen Victoria’s Diamond Jubilee procession, filmed for RW Paul.
This film shows several open landaus (luxury convertible carriages) continue in the Jubilee procession as it moved along York Road on the south side of the Thames. Filmed on behalf of RW Paul, it records the procession after the ceremony at St Paul’s. The Queen’s eight-horse carriage was the star of the show, but these carriages were worth filming too. However comfortable they might look, their passengers had been riding for several hours by this point and the open parasols suggest that the afternoon was starting to heat up.
