A street entertainer performs a routine with an extending ladder to a crowd on the pavement outside the Apollo Theatre. The final shot shows a woman asking a group of seated women for money. She may be the partner of the street performer collecting contributions, or she may be begging independently of the performer. This clip is taken from the 1929 Cine Kodagraph film Seeing London, London Life.
