Outing on the Thames 1933

8 mins England

An outing from the Midlands to Henley on Thames to enjoy the rowing and then continuing along the river passing sights in the City of London before ending at the River Crouch at Burnham. The starting point is the long lost Birmingham Snow Hill railway station with steam power of the Great Western Railway to the fore. Also look out for a trip on the fondly remembered Salter Brothers' steamer, purveyors of pleasure cruises on the Thames since Victorian times.

The film-maker, W.H. Williams, was from Wootton Wawen in Warwickshire.

The Media Archive for Central England is the public screen archive for the East and West Midlands. An independent charity and company based at the University of Lincoln, MACE acquires, catalogues, preserves and makes widely available moving image materials that inform our understanding of the diverse cultures and histories of communities between the Lincolnshire coast and the Welsh border.
