Could this film, one of a small collection shot by pharmacist Evan John Thomas, be amongst the earliest footage of Aberaeron in existence? Thomas came to the town in 1924 and, with ready access to film, recorded his family at the seaside (donkey, merry-go-round), along by the river and in Alban Square.
