Worshippers in their Sunday best file out of the Church.
Congregation Leaving St Mary's Church, Dumfries (1901)
An apparently unstoppable flood of worshippers pours down the steps of their church. Top hats and floral hats are in abundance, suggesting a well-heeled congregation. St Mary's Church, built in 1839, survives to this day and belongs to the Church of Scotland. As ever in Mitchell & Kenyon films, it's the children who show the most unembarrassed curiosity in the presence of the camera.
The Entrance staircase is the centerpiece of this "leaving Church" film by Mitchell & Kenyon, but other than that there is not much more to it. One interesting detail is the little poor girl waiting outside.
