Greater Beckenham - 1935
Captivating scenes of the 1930s good life, filmed around the prosperous streets and public amenities of Beckenham, West Wickham and Penge.
It's hard to choose a favourite scene from this encyclopaedic survey of Beckenham in 1935. Elegantly-dressed ladies shopping for the latest mod-cons at the electricity showroom on the High Street? Lads learning to swim at the elegant public baths? Crowds scrambling for a seat at Tennis Week? Or the evocative sight of water-sprinklers dampening down the dusty summer streets? You decide!
