One of the most impressive sights of the year on the English coast was the herring harvest. Hundreds of women would assemble in a race against time to gut, salt and barrel the fish before they went off. Their rapid gutting technique fascinated filmmakers. The trawler men, down from Scotland and the Islands, were f...

Cycling was an immensely popular sport in the Edwardian era: some 18,000 spectators attended this day of events held on Saturday 13 July 1901 at Manchester Athletics Ground. We see the start of a 2-mile motor race, together with generous coverage of the day's main competition, the 10-mile cycling race for the Mura...

Rough Sea at Roker

produced by Sagar Mitchell, 1866-1952 and James Kenyon, 1850-1925, Mitchell and Kenyon (London, England: British Film Institute), 1 min
These two different views of sea waves at Roker on England's north east coast illustrate the popularity of this type of subject in the early years of cinema. The first, a frontal view of the shallow, sandy beach, is as satisfyingly hypnotic now as it must have been when Mitchell & Kenyon filmed it one sunny day in...

Water Polo Match

produced by Sagar Mitchell, 1866-1952 and James Kenyon, 1850-1925, Mitchell and Kenyon (London, England: British Film Institute, 1901), 1 min
Water polo had developed as a game in the late 1800s, becoming increasingly formalised - to the extent that it was among the first team sports to be added to the Olympics in 1900. This film appears to show just one (unidentified) team demonstrating the sport for the camera rather than an actual game, but that does...

General French at Tranby Croft

produced by Sagar Mitchell, 1866-1952 and James Kenyon, 1850-1925, Mitchell and Kenyon (London, England: British Film Institute, 1902), 2 mins

Although he couldn't quite match the celebrity heights of Boer War heroes such as Lord Kitchener and Robert Baden-Powell, General French won headlines in February 1900 as the liberator of Kimberley in the Far North Cape. Seen here smoking in a relaxed fashion in the dark suit and no hat, French casually poses for...

Royal Scots Regiment at Edinburgh Castle (1901)

produced by Sagar Mitchell, 1866-1952 and James Kenyon, 1850-1925, Mitchell and Kenyon (London, England: British Film Institute, 1901), 3 mins
A distinct lack of military discipline is evident in these murky pictures of the oldest and most senior infantry regiment in the British Army. It's worth persevering with the clunky camerawork to catch the rare and unusually humanising close-ups of the men at ease. One young man steals the show, luxuriantly chewin...

This beautifully shot and well preserved film captures crowds in their Sunday best watching a procession of soldiers and policemen, apparently on the outskirts of Manchester. Many of the soldiers are in ceremonial dress, but the uniforms of others suggest some may have recently returned from - or be heading off to...
