Footage capturing life in the 1900s

A collection of film documentaries dating back 100 years that was found in the basement of a disused shop in 2002 has been added to a UN heritage list.

The restored films by Sagar Mitchell and James Kenyon give an insightful visual record of late Victorian and early Edwardian British life.

Watch some footage from the collection from 1901 and 1902.
