Gorgeous colour film of a school fair in Enfield with sports day and Dagenham Girl Pipers display
From the collection of:
There's much fun to be had with the many races and presentations in this film and, quite lovely, just a Snippet of a child eating a Wall's ice cream brick. The latter sequence shows the Dagenham Girl Pipers, who toured extensively. The band has a long and interesting history: during a pre-war performance Hitler was heard to remark: "I wish I had a band like that."
