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 is one of two reels of film taken by Peter Thornton of Farsley, Leeds, most likely while stationed in Egypt towards the end of the Second World War. This film features the Giza Necropolis and Cairo.
Amateur compilation of miscellaneous footage shot at locations around the world between 1927 and 1932, which includes China, Japan, possibly Burma, Canada, and the United States of America. The film concludes with film of a British wedding, unloading a tractor at a dock, and a London trip. World travel was probably undertaken on the luxurious Japanese trans-Pacific NYK - OSK passenger shipping line popular between WWI and WWII, with calls at Hong Kong, Shanghai, Kobe, Yokohama, Honolulu, Los Angeles and San Francisco. There may be glimpses of Japan’s military and colonial expansion into China in the 1930s. This film is part of the Newcastle & District Amateur Cinematographers Association (ACA) collection.
