  • Short Summary

    Lovely stencil colour print of a film about London's parks.

  • Description

    Rare stencil colour Pathe Pictorial item.

    Pathe Pictorial opening title with moving curtains - pale green tint. Intertitles tinted magenta - rest stencil coloured.

    The theme of the film is the parklands of London - "London's Lungs."

    Introductory intertitle reads: "There's no anatomy in this picture... it's just something of the beautiful spaces beyond the City... breathing places for London's teeming millions..."

    Women walk through a park - flowers have splashes of colour. Hampton Court Gardens. Different views of the gardens with people walking through. Richmond: a park land scene by a lake. Bushey Park: cars drive through park land. Richmond: horseback riders and deer. A sunset scene.

    Was originally an item in Pathe Pictorial issue number 578.

    Note: although the can is labelled "Pathetone early colour" the films in this reel are all Pathe Pictorial items, not Pathetone items.
