A Letter from Ayrshire

The varied sights of Ayrshire seen through a young lad's eyes - including a special trip to Prestwick aerodrome.

Children's 1954 11 mins Silent


From Ayrshire with love! This endearing travelogue takes the guise of a young lad's letter to his New York pen pal. Made for children, and typical of the kind of fare shown on Saturday mornings at cinemas all around the UK, the focus is on education as well as fun. A trip to Robert Burns' birthplace and a lace mill at Newmilns is offset with a boy's special treat – plane spotting from Prestwick control tower.
