British Pathe Juggling Videos (1925-1941) – Part 1

In July 2018, eJuggle published an article featuring 18 videos of juggling dating from 1925 and older. The reaction to that article was very positive. Four of those videos were from the archives of British Pathe, the famed newsreel and documentary company that ran from 1910 to 1970. The British Pathe archives recorded many other juggling acts that are wonderful insights into the history of our art. I’ve used many of the British Pathe juggling videos in past articles and have some that are being used in future articles. Below are 17 more such videos from 1925 to 1940 that weren’t included in the previous articles or planned for future articles. Part 2 will feature 18 other such videos. If you haven’t seen these, then you’re in for a great treat.

Part 2 will feature 17 more videos.
