London Video 100 years ago. The Congestion wasn’t much better!


I’ve been watching great vintage films from Youtube (BFIfilms) Check out Trafalgar Square and Bank and see how busy it is and look out for the chaos of the ‘speeding horses’ and the pedestrians trying to get through without any zebra crossings!

  1. It is very good, they were driving on the left then and not Higgledly Piggledly all over the Road. So there was some Traffic Rules,some basic regulations. There must have been a Beautiful Aroma of Horse Manure and Droppings everywhere.
    Somebody was kept very busy Cleaning it all up.

  2. Yes, I wonder whose ancestor had that wonderful job?!

    Looking at the video, I wonder when the Highway Code was first invented? You take for granted all the yellow lines.

    I wonder how cyclists fared darting through all those horses!
