Panoramic View of the Morecambe Sea Front 1901

 

The Mitchell & Kenyon film company created hundreds of films in Great Britain, but their best material is their “actualities,” documenting every day life at the turn of the century. Panoramic View of the Morecambe Sea Front is particularly captivating as the camera travels through the English beach resort town, observing the different people on holiday as it passes by. In the age where anyone can shoot a video on their phone and upload it to YouTube, it’s hard to remember just how special it is to have a record of life at this place and time, and share curious glances with people long dead.
