Chimney Sweep, November 7, 1931 The chimney sweep shown here is Councillor Tom Brooks, who continued to sweep chimneys while mayor of Bethnal Green. The Brooks family had a substantial chimney sweeping business working all over London and Tom, who lived in Brick Lane for 40 years, combined this with serving as a councillor for 28 years and as mayor three times. As a supporter of the temperance movement, he was responsible for moving the Sunday market from the northern end of Brick Lane.
Spirit: Stallion of the Cimarron is an animation from Dreamworks, a story about a horse. Well, it's cute and all that but it's certainly not in the caliber of Shrek or other hits from Dreamworks. The storyline lacked depth and as good as Matt Damon may be, riding on his name along doesn't produce a hit. May be worth watching with kids who like westerns.
