The Port of Cardiff 2 1943

24 mins Wales

Meat and wheat and every kind of treat are being unloaded from cargo ships at Cardiff’s docks during WWII, ensuring that the allies won’t starve before the war is over. By the tonne, from around the world have come oranges, Idaho Cheddar Cheese, dried whole eggs, cling peaches, fruits for salad, spring wheat flour, canned salmon and butter. Steel bars, too, have reached their destination safely.

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
