Does anyone know of this film? There must be something special about it. Has vinegar, but also has bids up to £54 and still 8 days to go!

T.9361 "Street Show" 1934, issued by Pathescope August 1938.

This 2-reeler shows the work of the Busker, or Strolling Player of the kerb, may mean a step back and he is under the traffic wheels. a step forward and he may grace the theatre of tomorrow. See them providing London with a non-stop street show free for all.

It's worth trying to find a copy.
An interesting film which shows various acts, many performers are ex-servicemen.
Did it perhaps influence the making of the 1938 "St. Martin's Lane" (aka "The Sidewalks of London")? Another great film which I have on 16mm.
