King Edward VII pays tribute to Manchester scholars during a visit to the city.

Non-Fiction 1902 3 mins Silent


The new King's visit to Manchester in March 1902 was a major occasion for Owens College (now the University of Manchester). The local press reported the presence of "not a few cinematographers" - evidently including Mitchell & Kenyon's cameraman - as well as "a number of photographers", some of whom can be spotted in this film. We catch a brief glimpse of the King passing in an open carriage.
