Description

Part of the Beck Collection, this film features footage of Sheffield during the Second World War including footage of a local pub and boys sledding down a snow-covered street. 

The film opens with a mother bouncing a new baby in her arms.  Following this is a close up of the other brothers. 

Next, there are soldiers and other people in a pub.  A woman behind the par pulls a pint, and there are shots of the bar’s patrons.  Some are seated at small, round tables, and others stand at the bar. 

One of the children runs towards the camera, and it is filmed in slow-motion.  The boys are then sledding down a snow-covered street.  The older brother pulls his little brother back up the hill on the sled, and he fixes the rope used to pull the sled.  They then race down the road again.
