Cross Country in Dublin in 1921...

In the first half of the 20th century in an era before television, the only way people got to see video footage of popular news stories was at the pictures. This was often shown preceding the main movie and was provided by a firm called British Pathé.

In this silent video dated from 1921, it shows a cross country race in Dublin which included roads and the scaling of walls.

Title...Dublin County Harriers - Invitation Cross Country Race. Dublin, Ireland.

Watch out for the dog ;o)
