Smallcombe Film Compilation

An unidentified – and intriguing – anthology of early amateur film.

Amateur film 1918 21 mins


This intriguing reel of 35mm film arrived unidentified at the BFI National Archive several decades ago. It appears to be a compilation of pre-war and World War I footage – quite possibly amateur films, and maybe assembled from several different sources. We'd welcome your help in identifying locations: the pony fair may be from Bampton, Devon?
