  • Title from container insert
  • Originally produced as separate motion pictures, 1900-1913
  • "In the earliest years of the twentieth century, enterprising traveling showmen in the north of England hired pioneer filmmakers Sagar Mitchell and James Kenyon to shoot footage of local people going about their everyday activities. These films would be shown later at nearby fairgrounds, town halls and neighborhood theaters. Workers, school children, sports fans and seaside vacationers all flocked to see themselves miraculously captured on screen. The astonishing discovery of the original Mitchell & Kenyon negatives in Blackburn, England in a basement about to be demolished has been described as film's equivalent of Tutankhamen's tomb. ...This treasure trove of extraordinary footage provides an unparalleled record of everyday life in the years before World War I."--Container insert
  • Special features: Optional voiceover commentary by Dr. Vanessa Toulmin, National Fairground Archive, University of Sheffield; Video interview with Dr. Toulmin; "Pictures of crowd splendour" by Tom Gunning, University of Chicago; Featurette on the restoration; "Diving Lucy" and additional shorts by Mitchell and Kenyon; Electric Edwardians press kit downloadable on DVD-Rom (Adobe Acrobat Reader required)
