Non-Fiction 1900 2 mins
This is one of Mitchell & Kenyon's earlier 'factory gate' films, and is shot from an unusually high camera position. As workers from the nearby lace factory, Thos. Adams and Co, walk towards and past the camera, they peer upwards as if trying to see what is going on. The film was shown in October 1900, as part of an exhibit of ' Electric Living Pictures' at the Goose Fair in the Old Market Square.
