Visitor Tabs

Description

This film is part of the Bradford College Collection and contains footage from the construction of an extension.

This film opens with a shot of the front of `Regional College of Art'; traffic passes by the building and the heads of some people are visible. The camera then zooms out to reveal a crowd of people gathered outside Bradford College to watch a datum peg ceremony.

A group of men in suits and chains of office are gathered around a circular, cement object; an older woman and a photographer are there also. One of the men leans down to the cement object and fixes the datum peg into place.
