Stockton High Street c1910

t15203This is a snapshot taken from a British Gaumont film from the early 20th century, film producers would visit a town and film local activities which they would then show at the local theatre/cinema, as you can see the furniture depository was in Knowles Street which of course is still there, the film was taken from a horse and cart being driven along the High Street and shows many young boys messing about as only young boys can and other horse drawn transport as well as people on the footpaths.
