Glimpse the past through old images of Maida Vale, in the City of Westminster, London.

Wounded Soldiers 1916

1916 was a particularly deadly year for soldiers serving in the 1914-18 Great War (later known as World War I).

In Maida Vale, some of the injured soliders recouperating in London were entertained at an outdoors event.

A small film clip shows them watching the event. In the first 7 years this video was on YouTube, it got just 60 views.

The clip is only a few seconds long, but here are the faces of some of the men who knew the horror of the trenches.
