Union Jack

In 1913, Lawrence Cowen converted a gas works shop located on Tuileries Street, Hackney, in London into a single stage studio.

Cowen called his company the Union Jack Film Company and thus the studio became known as the Union Jack Studio.

In 1914, Cowen released Britains first full length colour film The World, The Flesh and The Devil directed by F. Martin Thornton. G. A. Smith's Natural Colour Kinematograph Company produced the colour. Later that same year Smith was stopped from supplying the colour by a court order won by William Friese-Greene.

In 1920, Union Jack was closed and never reopened.
