Memoirs of our Holiday at Aberystwyth August 1931 1931

9 mins United Kingdom

Humorous intertitles narrate a film where the viewer is transported back to 1931 when Birkenhead holiday makers, with Welsh roots, came to Aberystwyth. The town’s carnival (see the snappy crocodile!) is enjoyed and, after Constitution Hill has been climbed, a game of miniature golf is played at the summit. A trip is taken via train through the picturesque Rheidol Valley, where the Devil’s Bridge can be seen along with beautiful waterfalls and a man enjoying his pipe.

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
