329 GRIMSBY TRAWLERS
Grimsby, North Sea Early 20th Century
Trawlers at sea, with scenes filmed on board as the catch is hauled in and sorted. Later, the boats are shown returning to port. One of them, the Pharos, registered in 1901, was lost in 1906. Remarkable early footage by an intrepid photographer prepared to operate a hand-turned camera on the swaying deck of a trawler at sea. The oldest known surviving film of Lincolnshire.
687 CONCRETE EVIDENCE
Springfield Scout Camp Site, Scartho 1952/3
At first, the general desire to ‘get as wet as possible’ means having boisterous water fights, but enough funds become available to buy the materials to build a swimming pool, provided the Scouts do all the work themselves. The film follows every stage of the job from the surveying to the final triumphant opening in 1953.
