    A quite interesting/funny film: http://www.britishpathe.com/record.php?id=48149

    You can see many old cameras in action (all these Leicas...).

    Apparently according to the thread in the forum, I found the link, the ladies in the Windmill theatre were a bit less dressed. You also have some nice pieces of English humor.

    The Windmill was famous their motto was "We never close" and indeed gave three shows a day right through the Blitz in WW11, people used to say that it wasn't applause you could her in the Windmill, but the men in the audiences fly buttons hitting the ceiling. :wink:
