Living Wigan 1902

This vibrant film was shown as part of the Lancashire town's celebrations of Edward VII's coronation. People wave, cheer and laugh at the camera as a tram worker playfully tries to clear them out of the way by spraying them with water. As the camera pans to follow the tram disappearing down the hill, it passes over women in shawls, men smoking, and a little girl in a bonnet being held aloft.
