  • Description

    Old time custom, London.

    Yeomen of the Guard; ca. 1918. Title frame: An Old-Time Custom. Beefeaters search the Vaults of the Houses of Parliament. In this film they must be on their way to do it. Shot of group of Beefeaters (Yeomen); dressed in their traditional Elizabethan costume uniforms -- tunics; sashes; ruffs; wide hats; etc. and; holding long spears or standards. First stand looking at camera. They walk toward camera; followed by a few boys. Walk down street; past iron fence. Now behind them 2 women and a dog. So evocative of London; it's even a foggy looking day.

    Ritual; England; pomp.
