    Unusual footage of late night London - drunken toffs and workers congregate around a coffee stall.

  • Description

    No title.

    Scenes of London at night. Statue of Shakespeare in Hyde (?) Park. Bustle of people around entrance to Leicester Square Tube Station. At midnight on The Strand - cars, buses and lots of people. An Embankment Coffee Stall - a pretend fight takes place. Drunken upper class men in Top Hat and Tails sip coffee side by side with more sober types - workers. Sir James Barrie is also taking the night air at the stall. We see him drinking a cup of tea looking a bit furtive. The Lions of Trafalgar Square. Nelson's Column lit by a very strong searchlight. War memorial.

    Safety print exists.

    Note: unusual shots showing how busy London can be at night.
