Amazing film recordings from approx. 120 years ago converted to colour. Watch out for the fire brigade turning out at 22:13.

Looking in vain for a motor car (although haven't watched it all.) When first might you have expected to see one in London?

Numerous motorised charabancs are evident in several scenes, something resembling a motorised hen hut appears at 11:46 weaving through the general throng of horse drawn traffic/pedestrians, probably receiving similar condemnation back then as what electric scooters are receiving today?
