Queen Victoria's Diamond Jubilee parade in London. The titles are descriptive of what is going on in the series of clips from the event. "Caped Mounted Riflemen Passing St Paul's" and "Dragoons Passing St Paul's" are two examples. This is outside St Paul's Cathedral in London and the parade took place on June 22, 1897. From BFI: "Paul had three cameras covering the procession: one at the corner of York Road, and two on the north and south sides of St Paul's Churchyard (the south operated by himself). Twelve separate films were made, of which the NFTVA holds four."
With a mix of different sources and clips, its difficult to map all of the Robert W. Paul production.

Early cinema was not that spectacular, and this show may be something of the more spectacular, namely a military parade. Filmed from a series of fixed positions it does not count for much, but at least it did record a slice of history from a multitude of angles. They seem to have missed filming the Queen's carriage in full, but it is a quite spectacular parade non the less.
