The projectionist for the Strand would set up his camera and film candid portraits of town people going by. After developing the film, he would show it as a preview at the Strand. The quality of the images is considered to be superb for the age and type of film used.
The Strand Cinema is still standing nowadays and labeled as a national historical building.
