At the Seaside and Sailing
Thirties seaside holidays feature in this Albany Cine Club film - with families, dogs, pipe smokers and uncomfortable woolen swimwear
From the collection of:
This holiday film from the 1930s starts with a boy in a dressing gown making his way to a rocky beach and a swim. Then we see the whole family, and their dogs, playing on the beach and swimming. Mum holds a Box Brownie camera while Dad plays about in a canoe. Later we see the family haul a small sailboat to the water's edge followed by scenes onboard with pipe smoking men in flatcaps. The beachside frolics continue with more scenes showing the family and their dogs.
