Mitchell and Kenyon 360: Workers Leaving A Factory in Wigan, 1902
See details
produced by Mitchell and Kenyon (London, England: British Film Institute, 1902), 3 mins
These smartly-dressed employees with their bowler hats and pocket watches are far from typical subjects for a 'factory gate' film. They tell us that the work was probably clerical or managerial, but although we know the film was shot in August 1902, so far we're left guessing what the company was. The leaflets bei...

A rich assortment of transport is on display in this busy Edwardian street, including a hand-pushed cart, elegant horses pulling dainty two-wheel carriages and a much more workaday cart carrying a live cow - not forgetting the imposing steam-powered trams. There's a striking absence of women, though a handful of g...

Before the introduction of a national fire service in 1938, Wigan, like hundreds of towns and cities across the land, had its own municipal fire service. 'Turn-outs' were staged events to demonstrate to the local populace the swiftness of their brigade. In the early 1900s the steam-powered appliances seen here wer...

Mitchell and Kenyon 367: Wigan Mayoral Coronation Procession, 1902
See details
produced by Mitchell and Kenyon (London, England: British Film Institute, 1902), 2 mins
Some particularly deft camera positioning gives this film of Wigan's coronation procession an extra charge. The procession approaches the audience head-on - before turning off just in front of the camera. It's a striking effect, reminiscent of French film pioneers the Lumière Brothers who, so legend has it, had n...

Unlike some other sports films in the Mitchell and Kenyon collection, these scenes emphasise the players more than the crowds. We see the teams walking onto the pitch, some unusually close shots of match action and a brief respite for the players pitch-side. Commissioned by Edisonograph, the film was shown to a pa...

Mitchell and Kenyon 479: Children Leaving Tyldesley Catholic School, Lodge Road, 1901

This is textbook Mitchell & Kenyon 'crowd' filmmaking in two shots: carefully staged pomp giving way to genial chaos. The long opening take elegantly frames the kids trudging the pavement past the camera, with a wall as background. Then, with his remaining film-stock, the operator turns his camera to face the kids...
