Description

Frames from a film made by the Lumiere brothers of Queen Victoria's Diamond Jubilee procesion in London on 22 June, 1897. The film was made for their cinematographe shows. In 1895 Auguste Lumiere (1862-1954) and his brother Louis (1865-1948) invented the 'Cinematographe'. This was the first machine to project images onto a screen. In the same year, they built the first cinema in Lyons, France. Over the next five years, the Lumieres amased a huge catalogue of film shot around the world by their team of photographers.
