More 1890s London on Film

As an addendum to my earlier post on the cinematic record of Victorian London, here is another short compilation, courtesy of British Pathé.

It includes footage of street traffic at the Bank of England, Westminster Bridge with a view toward Parliament, Tower Bridge, Leicester Square (where the Empire Theatre is showing Lumière films), Piccadilly Circus, Hyde Park Corner, and London Bridge.
