An elaborate model of Cheapside in 1616 is compared to how the area looks in 1929.
A unique model is demonstrated which spans the centuries from 1616 to 1929.
Mr John B. Thorp has made a replica of Cheapside during the Lord Mayors Show of A.D. 1616. We see the model maker placing tiny figures inside windows. Part of the model moves - a parade of people and floats.
A model of "Gog and Magog" glides past. Horses and other figures move in front of timbered houses. Various views of various model floats and figures. Very cute. The model is compared to the real Cheapside. Good travelling shot of man sitting on top of a brewers dray - the name Worthington just visible. Bus follows behind.
