Feeding Pigeons in Parliament Square, Westminster
The opening shot shows Parliament Street from Parliament Square. A small crowd of people watch as a woman feeds pigeons, placing the food in her own mouth for the pigeons to take. She is, presumably, a street performer. This clip is taken from the 1929 Cine Kodagraph film Seeing London, London Life. For further information on this title, please see the full LMA catalogue record, the full film can also be viewed online at
