Great Western Ports 1929

86 mins United Kingdom

"Any Ware to Anywhere" - a film advertising the thoroughly modern merits of the Great Western Railway ports (at Cardiff, Newport, Barry, Port Talbot, Swansea, Fishguard, Weymouth and Plymouth) in a bid to attract the "hearty co-operation and help" of industrialists. There are many interesting, attractive shots of the docks which, incidentally, show the hazardous and gruelling nature of a docker's work and the vast numbers of men employed in the industry.

National Screen and Sound Archive of Wales preserves and celebrates the sound and moving image heritage of Wales, making it accessible to a wide range of users for enjoyment and learning. Its film collection reflects every aspect of the nation’s social, cultural and working life across the 20th century, giving a fascinating insight into Welsh filmmaking, both amateur and professional
