The snappily-named 'Tweedale-Edison Phono-Bio-Motograph Company' found huge success in Halifax for its programme of films entitled 'A Trip Round the World'. But the most popular part of the show proved to be these local scenes. It's likely that they were shot at different times throughout the two-week run at Victoria Hall and added to the bill to encourage paying audiences to come back for more.
