The firm of Sagar Mitchell and James Kenyon were commissioned by the turn of the century traveling exhibitors for showings at local fairgrounds, town halls and theaters. The discovery by Peter Worden of the Mitchell & Kenyon collection has been described as film's equivalent of Tutankhamen's tomb. This treasure trove of 800 films of extraordinary actuality footage provides an unparalleled social record of everyday life in early 20th-century Britain. Street and transport scenes, sporting events, parades, local industries and a myriad of simple pleasures whirl by on the screen in a mesmerizing fashion.
