Views of the Trent Bridge Boulevard (1902)

A sunny Edwardian summer's day, and the Nottingham boulevard is busy with promenaders.

Documentary 1902 1 mins Silent


The film is taken in the long boulevard that comes off the Trent Bridge, presumably around the same time as the scenes of people boating on the river below in Mitchell and Kenyon's Scenes on the Trent, Nottingham. Captain Thomas Payne, the showmen in the top hat, directs the exuberant crowd to look at the camera and wave and cheer. At the back of the crowd are some boys larking about, as they do.
