Film ID: YFA 614 GLW, SCARBOROUGH AND WHITBY 1930s Visitor TabsDescription This is a film from the Michael Hobson collection of a family holiday to Scarborough and Whitby. Also included on the reel is a Mickey Mouse film at the end. The film begins on a campsite with a woman doing some washing up. A large group of people are walking across a field. Then three adults sit watching a group of children play with model boats on a pool of water on the north beach at Scarborough. One small boy attempts to do a handstand in the sand. Three men have managed to do a double decker flying angel in the lido, packed with swimmers. Back on the beach, people sit on deckchairs. People go around a circuit on novelty bikes. The film moves to Whitby where boys look over railings onto the sea and walk up the 199 steps to the Abbey. They stroke a donkey at the top near the Abbey, and look out over Whitby. The film then returns to the campsite where a family have breakfast. There is a brief film of a family playing in a back garden before we see a parade through a city centre from over the tops of the heads of the on looking crowd. The film returns to the beach and views over the coast, before we see a family walking along a road and more of them travelling on holiday by car and at coastal resorts. Next they are with a miniature train, possibly at Scarborough. They then go for a walk inland, passing a waterfall. At the end there is a Pathescope film, Prelude Micky (December 1935).
