Lincolnshire: A century on Film. Reel Two - Fool's Paradise

Alan Stennett

Lincolnshire: A century on Film by Alan Stennett.  Reel Two - Fool's Paradise.  Volume Two covers the decade leading up to the Second World War.  With the availability of smaller, easy to use cine cameras, many more people were now recording their lives on film, and judging from their pictures, some of them now in colour.  Lincolnshire Life seems to have been largely unaffected by the political and economic problems of the 1930s.  Agriculture and the Grimsby fishing industry were clearly thriving, with fish now being frozen for retail sale; and RAF planes flour-bombing a canvas tank give little hint of the horrors soon to come.

 

Lincoln buildings feature prominently, traffic hold-ups and its workforce thronging the streets on bicycles.  Travel by steam train, motor bus, trolleybus, and a various river craft including the Humber Ferry, plus floods at Stamford.  Watch out too for Billy Butlin, Gracie Fields, the Dagenham Girl Pipers and a nine year old Margaret Roberts (to become Margaret Thatcher)!

 

A wonderful present idea for Granny or Grandpa this birthday or Christmas.
