#55808, "Amusing Early Footage"


  

          

I don't know how many of you have seen this, but I was recently studying some remarkable footage of Lucania leaving Liverpool, from 1901.

Here we have some of the oldest film in existence, showing amazing images of a top Cunard liner leaving the famous Liverpool landing stage, and well... check it out at about the 20 second mark:

This did make me laugh a lot.

I have not seen that particular clip before, but there is similar footage of the Lucania or Campania at Liverpool on either of two DVDs called "The lost world of Mitchell & Kenyon" or "Electric Edwardians"
available from Amazon.co.uk.

I don't remember which of those DVDs had the most footage of the ship, including some deck views, but otherwise they are interesting period documentaries in themselves.

I would recommend "The lost world" for general interest if buying only one.

https://www.amazon.co.uk/Lost-World-Mitchell-Kenyon-Complete/dp/B00070HKA6/ref=sr_1_1?s=dvd&ie=UTF8&qid=1517860604&sr=1-1&keywords=Lost+world+kenyon

Thanks. I didn't know about those DVDs. They sound interesting and definitely worth having.

The collection of Lucania clips at Getty Images are licensed from the British Film Institute, where the originals are kept.

Hi Jason,

That is great footage, and in surprisingly good condition for its age. I'm not sure what was the meaning behind the shaking of the fist.

The other Campania and Lucania videos at that site are well worth watching too. There are a couple of good ones showing lifeboat drill at https://www.gettyimages.ca/detail/video/cunard-mail-steamer-lucania-leaving-for-america-stock-video-footage/450004846 and https://www.gettyimages.ca/detail/video/cunard-mail-steamer-lucania-leaving-for-america-stock-video-footage/450004842 .

Regards,
Ralph
