Remarkable scenes of St George's Day celebrations in early 20th century Merseyside.

Non-Fiction 1901 8 mins Silent


Liverpool was a flourishing, prosperous city in 1901 and this display of English patriotism and civic pride was one of several events in the city captured on film that year. We see the throng of onlookers around Nelson's monument and Castle Street as the procession wends its way to St. George's Hall. In one puzzling scene, a Town Hall official points angrily at the cameraman.
