Description

Part of the Beck Collection, this film features footage of Sheffield during the Second World War including a fair. 

The film opens with five soldiers who smile and walk past the camera.  (This is filmed in slow-motion.)

Next, there is a small fair at which there is a carousel full of children.  The old man operating the ride stands in the middle of the carousel, and parents and other children are gathered around the ride.  Many of them wear heavy winter or fur coats, and there are panning shots of the surrounding fair.

The next portion of the film features an allotment, and the children walk down the garden path with small wheelbarrows.
