Beach Scene

A charming image of children paddling on a pebbly beach on a hot summer's day

Non-Fiction 1897 1 mins Silent


There is something comfortingly familiar about the way these Victorian children are playing on the beach. It's a carefree summer's day, with the only things to worry about garments unrolling and getting wet. A pier in the background suggests this might be one of a number of films shot by Arthur Cheetham in Rhyl, north Wales.
