A man using a telescope to spy on an affectionate couple is sent flying in this 1900 film by George Albert Smith.
An top-hatted man is seen looking through a telescope on the street. The camera shows us what he sees, a man with a bicycle stroking the ankle of his lover while he ties her shoe. The old man is seen sitting down on his stool before he is knocked off his stool by the couple as they walk past.
