Overview

"Any Ware to Anywhere" - a film advertising the thoroughly modern merits of the Great Western Railway ports (at Cardiff, Newport, Barry, Port Talbot, Swansea, Fishguard, Weymouth and Plymouth) in a bid to attract the "hearty co-operation and help" of industrialists. There are many interesting, attractive shots of the docks which, incidentally, show the hazardous and gruelling nature of a docker's work and the vast numbers of men employed in the industry.
