Old London Street Scenes (1903) | BFI

Old London Street Scenes (1903) | BFI Subscribe: Watch more on the BFI Player: Made over 100 years ago, this footage shows a number of scenes shot around central London, taking in locations such as Hyde Park Corner, Parliament Square and Charing Cross Station. We see crowds of people disembarking from a pleasure steamer at Victoria Embankment, pedestrians dodging horse-drawn carriages in Pall Mall, and heavy traffic trotting down the Strand. There are plenty of famous landmarks to spot here, including Big Ben, the National Gallery and the Bank of England, and it is fascinating to see the similarities between the customs of "then" and "now" - the dense traffic (mainly horse-drawn, with the occasional motor car) is highly reminiscent of today's London rush hour, whilst advertising on public transport is clearly no new phenomenon - in one scene, an advert for Nestlé's Milk seems to be plastered on every other vehicle. (Alex Davidson) All titles on the BFI Films channel are preserved in the vast collections of the BFI National Archive.

5 Most Beautiful Royal Princesses in Indian History

Credits : Music : No Copyright Music , No Copyright Sounds | Royal somer 5 Most Beautiful Royal Princesses in Indian History 1. Maharani Gayatri Devi - India May 23, 1919 to July 29, 2009 Ranked as the "Most Beautiful Woman in the World" in the 60's, by Vogue Magazine. Late Rajmata Gayatri Devi was the Maharani of Jaipur from 1939 to 1970. She was the epitome of true royalty and effortless style. Educated in Europe, the Maharani was a striking beauty in her youth and grew up to become quite a fashion icon. Passionate about horse-riding, she was an able Polo player and a good shot, often indulging in hunting, a royal pastime, in her youth. 2. Indira Raje of Baroda - India February 19, 1892 to September 6, 1968 Maharani of Cooch Behar, was a stunningly beautiful woman and prominent socialite. The strong-willed princess' personality shone through when she was a very young woman. She was engaged to the Scindia of Gwalior, but in defiance of her parents' wishes and royal protocol, at 18 she eloped with her sweetheart, Prince Jitendra of Cooch Behar. As fate would have it, her husband became the Maharaja of Cooch Behar a short while later, but passed away leaving his Maharani a young widow with five children. She accepted her circumstances with grace and served as regent till her eldest son, then a minor, came of age to ascend the throne. 3. Sita Devi of Baroda - India May 12, 1917 to February 15, 1989 Probably one of the most colorful royals in Indian history was Maharani Sita Devi Sahib of Baroda, christened the 'Indian Wallis Simpson'. This daughter of the Zamindar of Pithapuram married the Zamindar of Vayyur and bore him three children. But in 1943, she met and was smitten by Maharaja Pratap Singh Gaekwar of Baroda. Using legal loopholes and unmindful of the scandal it caused in those days, Sita Devi left her first husband and married the Maharaja, embarking upon a jet-setting life that saw her spend millions on shopping abroad, mingling with royalty from across the world and setting up a second home in Monte Carlo, Monaco. 4. Sita Devi of Kapurthala - India 1915 to 2002. Rani Sita Devi of Kapurthala is regarded as one of India's most glamorous royals of all time. Born the daughter of a zamindar, she was married at the age of 13 to a younger son of the Sikh Maharaja Jagatjit Singh of Kapurthala. As a young woman, she quickly gained a reputation as one of the most beautiful Indian women of the day and like her namesake and contemporary Sita Devi of Baroda, she quickly became part of Europe's elite fraternity. The Rani was fluent in several European languages and had couturiers across the Continent falling all over her in fact, Italian couturier Elsa Schiaparelli was so taken with her that her 1935 collection was inspired by Sita Devi's saris. What she wore one day was the hottest trend on the next. At the age of 19, Vogue Magazine called her a 'secular goddess' and Look counted her among the five best-dressed women on earth. Sita Devi impressed one and all including her husband, who lavished his royal wife with resplendent jewelry by some of the biggest names like Cartier Van Cleef & Arpels. As befitted her status, she was always decked out in jaw-dropping jewels and was showered with attention and praise wherever she went. 5. Princess Niloufer Of Hyderabad - Hyderabad A remarkably beautiful woman, Niloufer was the perfect princess in many ways, attending social dos and inaugurating events decked out in the latest fashions of the day. She was considered among the 10 most beautiful women in the world and movie offers came her way often. There was, however, more to her than the popular social and public image. She was a champion of women's rights and during World War II, she received training as a nurse and carried out relief duties. Niloufer also established a hospital for women and children in Hyderabad, after losing one of her maids in childbirth. Despite her love of children, the princess was tragically unable to conceive and it is rumored that behind the glamorous facade was an empty, unhappy woman. Post her divorce she moved to Paris, where she died in 1989 and they named another hospital after her.
