  • Description

    Hammersmith, London and Malton, Yorkshire.

    Various shots of a horse-drawn western stagecoach being driven by cowboys through Hammersmith; it seems to be part of some unexplained publicity stunt.

    At Flamingo Park in Malton we see C/U of a sign reading 'Boothill Cemetry' [sic]; a man in cowboy costume adds another gravestone to the cemetery. Several shots show a western-style town in the theme park called Cowboy City. Numerous visitors sit and watch a shoot-out show put on by the 'locals'. The children watching are enlisted by the Sheriff to help capture the baddies; they catch the outlaws and take them off to the jail.

    Note: on file are notes on the theme park and people seen. Cuts exist - see separate record.

Animals are often the forgotten army of World War I. They displayed unwavering courage even when exposed to extreme conditions. British Pathé pay tribute to these forgotten warriors.

British Pathe captured many extraordinary events on film over its 80 year history but sometimes the cameras were switched on when tragedy struck.
