Sellers and customers at Pettticoat Lane Market are captivated by Cecil Hepworth's camera.
Boys and men crowd a busy commercial street. Only their heads are seen, as the camera pans across. Nearly all stare at the camera. The market stalls are visible behind. A market seller speaks animatedly but everyone is staring at the camera. A woman sells trousers from a stall. The camera pans across further men staring at the camera to another female market seller taking money from a customer.
