  • Short Summary

    Pet dogs and their owners collect licences - lots of lovely doggy scenes.

  • Description

    Full title reads: "London - "Every Mongrel has his day!" - Hundreds & hundreds of 'every kind of dog', gather outside the Regal Cinema to receive free licences - reprieving them for 1932!"

    The title card features a nice picture of a dog.

    London.

    Exterior of cinema. Dogs and owners stand outside. They run and walk to the right of the camera. One boys is holding his dog. More shots (possibly around the side of the building) of people, both men and women holding their dogs. They walk past the camera. There is quite a number of them queuing. A crowd of dog owners hold their pets up for inspection by the camera. More shots of the same. One young man stands with his small pet dog perched on this head. Single shot of man holding his dog up for the camera. Man in 'inspector'-type hat makes notes of various dogs and their owners. He hands out pieces of paper to the owners. Nice end shot with woman holding her dog up to the camera.

    There appears to have been a shorter, silent version of this item in Gazette 1886. This is currently missing.
