  • Short Summary

    Good general views of Piccadilly Circus.

  • Description

    Unissued / unused footage - dates and locations may be unclear / unknown.

    Piccadilly Circus, London.

    Various shots of Piccadilly Circus, showing traffic, pedestrians, advertising boards, statue of Eros.

    (Taken especially for Piccadilly Theatre Johannesburg.)

    Cataloguer's note: interesting how in the 50s the main advertisers at Piccadilly Circus were Bovril, Brylcreem, Wrigley's Chewing Gum, Schweppes - all quite small products compared to the present day massive electrical companies who advertise there.
