Fa parte degli Orphan Works del British Film Institute
Durata: 1 min.
Portobello's eccentric characters| its antique wares| clothing and odd assortments of bric-a-brac are all on display in this vivid amateur film. It was made by visiting Canadian Eileen D. Smith| who shot several home movies of her holidays in Britain in the 50s: compare this one with the equally colourful Petticoat Lane (1959) and Veteran Car Rally| Brighton (1962). Like many other famous London markets| Portobello Road had sold food and other essential items before the 1940s| when rag-and-bone men started to sell their finds. Today the market is rather more upscale. This video is part of the Orphan Works collection. When the rights-holder for a film cannot be found| that film is classified as an Orphan Work.
