This short excerpt comes from Charles Urban's travelogue Living London.

The 11-minute edited version of the film held by the NFSA is the only known surviving footage of the 40-minute original.

It was screened in the first decade of the twentieth century by the Australian-based Corrick Family Entertainers as part of their variety act.

Urban's sweeping portrait of turn-of-the-century life in London was a great success with audiences in Britain and Australia.
