I'm glad lots of you liked seeing my family's home movies from 1933 (previous post here if you missed it). Here are some more clips...
This is my Nana's cousin's home in Cardiff. We think the old lady in the window is my great-great-grandmother. The man with the bowler hat doesn't seem to have got his head round the fact that it's a moving picture, not a photograph, and seems to be telling the children off for moving! The elegant young lady holding baby Joan's hand is my Nana Eileen. I can't get over her outfit!
Down at the dog track!
Playing in the garden. The lady with the blonde pincurls is my great-great-auntie Esther. The lady with the dark hair, who's name is Nancy, has the most amazing dress with those bows on it. I'm sure I've seen a (repro?) sewing pattern that looks very similar - any clues? Not sure who the frolicking couple at the end of the clip are, but they look like a hoot!
The film then jumps ahead to after the war, to what we think is about 1949 in Bournemouth. Clips to follow!
