This is one of a collection of films made by the Selby Cine Club. This film provides a wonderful overview of the town of Selby as it was in 1965 and is accompanied by an interesting historical commentary. It shows pedestrians and traffic in the town centre, many of the shops, and includes the Toll Bridge, the Monday market, the Reverend John Kent giving a tour of the Abbey, the shipyard, the BOCM Mill, and a Council meeting.
This amateur home movie documents the McQueen family travel to the USA in 1955 and 1956 aboard Cunard-White Star ocean liners Mauretania II and the Queen Mary. The film features many family scenes with friends in New York, Long Island, and locations in Virginia, with interesting footage of a children’s Halloween Day parade.
