• Short Summary

    Billy Reid and His London Accordion Band play some old-time popular tunes, and we are invited to hum, sing or whistle along.

  • Description

    Titles read: "And now for musical memories with Billy Reid and His London Accordion Band. You are invited to join in, humming, singing, or whistling these old-time popular melodies - never mind the roof - it isn't ours!"

    London (probably Pathe Studio).

    Various shots of Billy Reid and His London Accordion Band (six men and Billy on accordions, a man on guitar, another on bass and another on the drums). They play 'Auntie Reenie', 'She Was A Sweet Little Dicky Bird', 'Two Lovely Black Eyes' (they sing to this one), 'Comrades' and 'Daisy Bell'. To the last tune we see a woman and man in Victorian costume act out a little scene before the band as the man sings the words to the woman. She runs off and he follows her, wheeling his tandem bicycle, but they both come riding past on the last line, and fall off, rather unconvincingly.
