A scene on the Thames, shot from a boat by Cecil Hepworth in 1899.
Boats, women with umbrellas, punts, house boats and motor boats can be seen in this footage, taken from a boat on the river that glides along the water. Behind it is possible to read a large banner for "The Sportsman" and another for "Searle". The camera follows a motor boat under a bridge.
