Street Scenes and Salvation Army Meeting

Rare footage of Sally Army general William Booth.

Non-Fiction 1900 1 mins


This early film contains rare footage of the Salvation Army’s famous first general William Booth. Neither the maker, date nor location have been precisely identified. Booth undertook a Great Britain-wide tour in 1904 so the film may have been taken then. The background suggests the edges of a village, and the presence of a red rampant lion flag that it may be in Scotland. Later, the film seems to switch to an urban location.
