London traffic scenes from the 1890s

Film shot of London street scenes, mostly from the 1890s and 1900s.

There’s also a brief shot of Paris in 1900 right at the end. See also the extremely rare footage of Queen Victoria visiting Dublin in 1900. The Victorian era seems so long ago (and indeed she began her reign in 1837) but there she is on the modern medium of film. Yet another example of the Great Span.
