Description:
This photograph shows Sinclair Knill and some of his friends in a car in front of an early Paris movie theatre, c. 1913. Richard Thompson's car was among the first in Paris, bought in 1909, and Knill was his driver.

The movie theatre has posters for several films, most prominently Friends (tagline: "A story of true friendship"), which may be D.W. Griffiths's 1912 short by that title. The other poster reads "The Millionaire's [Adventure?]", which may be the 1910 Lubin film by that name. The shop window for "Laskey's Diamond [obscured]" is also visible.
