Andover dons the finery in this colourful compilation of films from the 1950s - with dancing, fetes, parades and carnivals. Plus a visit to Stonehenge and an archaeological dig.
From the collection of:
Starting with Andover's Coronation celebrations, this compilation covers many events in the town's social calendar. We see garden parties and fancy-dress fetes, a number of colourful carnivals and several mayoral processions through the streets of Andover. We also see visitors to Stonehenge walk beside and sit on the stones followed by skeletons being unearthed at an archaeological dig. We end on Remembrance Sunday where wreaths are laid on the town's war memorial.
