  • Description

    No title. Various people are seen dressed up in "Dickensian" costume. M/S of man with a large beard sitting in a garden reading a newspaper. L/S of Dickensian group walking through a park or garden.

    "Grave and gay, awkward and comely - they're all here - the people of a dream." Children and adults pass the camera. "And the irony of fashion - even now they're talking of going back in style to those far-off days of a century ago." Man with a large fake moustache helps women onto the roof of an old fashioned carriage. Other women climb inside. The horse drawn carriage moves off and people wave as it goes past.

    The shots are all out of focus - presumably to suggest

    Was an item in Eve's Film Review issue number 559.

    Safety print - original decomposed.
