Scenes on Victoria Embankment at Lunchtime
A group of men and women, possibly homeless, relax on a bench. An Eldorado Ice Cream seller leans on his bicycle cart while trams and cars pass in the background. A group of women in twenties fashions play golf, while a female photographer take a portrait of another woman. A street entertainer with a telescope situated on the north east corner of Westminster Bridge shows a small boy the clock face of Big Ben. This clip is taken from the 1929 Cine Kodagraph film Seeing London, London Life.
