Our Holiday 1934

11 mins United Kingdom

We do not know who this family are, though they look to be having a great time, providing a lovely home movie of a holiday at the north Norfolk seaside in 1934. Travelling by train and arriving at Sheringham station, the family enjoy days at the beach, playing on the sand and paddling in the sea, and on Regatta Day capture the launch of a lifeboat. Then, as the intertitles state, “good things come to an end”, the family leave their boarding house, with a farewell from the landlady.

The East Anglian Film Archive, the first and largest Regional Film Archive in England, was established in 1976. Since 1984, EAFA has been owned and operated by the University of East Anglia, Norwich (UEA), to support research and work to preserve our moving image heritage. More than 250 hours are freely available online as examples of the wide range of film which attracts interest the world over.
