  • Description

    Old-Time Wedding Coach In London (crowd scenes).

    Location of events unknown - probably London?

    Shots from above of a coach drawn by four horses pulling up in the street. Crowd of onlookers surrounds coach; cars and buses drive past in street behind. People crowding round trying to catch a glimpse; jostling etc. so that coach is even rocking a bit. Bride and groom entering coach. Meanwhile some of the crowd look up; see the Pathe camera above and start waving.

    It looks quite funny - first they're all frantically trying to get a glimpse of the bride and groom, then they wave their hats madly at camera! Good example of people finding their own entertainment - SL.

    Weddings.
