Frank Gehry has exploded the landscape of modern architecture, transforming it from a conventional science into a sublime and majestic form of art. Rebelling against the status quo, Gehry's struggle to create the impossible has resulted in such contemporary masterpieces as the Walt Disney Concert Hall in Los Angel...

Lady Mostyn Discharging Grain at Irvine
See details
produced by Sagar Mitchell, 1866-1952 and James Kenyon, 1850-1925, Mitchell and Kenyon (United Kingdom: British Film Institute, 1902), 2 mins
The job of an Edwardian stevedore was back-breaking, as this film, showing cargo ship Lady Mostyn unloading at Irvine docks, makes clear. A winch loads the grain into sacks, but they are carried down a gang plank to the waiting carts on broad shoulders. It's hard not to be impressed at this physical feat: the sack...

Mitchell and Kenyon 686: Public School in Annan (C.1901)

produced by Mitchell and Kenyon (United Kingdom: British Film Institute, 1901), 2 mins
Mitchell & Kenyon captured over twenty of these school films, but this example is more anarchic than most. Where others show pupils in a more-or-less orderly march presided over by their stern-faced teachers, here the participants race past at almost full pelt. The effect is a joyous sense of freedom, and it's har...

produced by Mitchell and Kenyon (United Kingdom: British Film Institute, 1901), 2 mins

Although some of the boys at the rear of these groups of schoolchildren can't resist waving their caps as they pass the camera, for the most part the children are noticeably more disciplined than those in some other Mitchell and Kenyon films, parading in carefully-shaped blocks that seem almost as well-hewn as the...

Mitchell and Kenyon 691: Turn out of the Dundee Fire Brigade (1901)

produced by Mitchell and Kenyon (United Kingdom: British Film Institute, 1901), 1 min
Some unexpected framing in the two sequences of this film takes the fire engines out of shot when first glanced, but they make a dramatic reappearance moments later. The man carrying what looks like a Gladstone bag is probably one of Mitchell and Kenyon's showman collaborators as he's positioned at the street corn...

Mitchell and Kenyon 693: Procession in Edinburgh (1901)

produced by Mitchell and Kenyon (United Kingdom: British Film Institute, 1901), 2 mins
We don't know whose passing this sombre funeral procession was marking, and the poor light makes it difficult to distinguish much about the mourners, either. But the naval uniforms suggest a military connection. The ominous-looking 'lightning bolts' throughout the film are the result of static created in the camer...
