What a great video Rose, and what a wonderful home movie, just think that was 82 years ago, marvellous photography and a great slice of history. Sorry for all the superlatives but it was so very good. I enjoyed it (can you tell?) thank you. Loved the music too. And isn/wasn't the 80 year old Mary attractive too? :-)

I'm glad you enjoyed it Ann :-D It's a real little gem and as you say the photography was marvellous, and the film has kept the clarity which is often lost with old film..

I particularly loved the three dogs. They were what I call "ordinary" dogs and were just part of the scene in those days. Really brought back memories.

And those white socks and black shoes of the children. Typical Sunday best or visiting aunts - or even going shopping in town (with mum always wearing a nice coat and hat) :-) :-)

Just a little nudge, as I am watching this again, and thought some of you who missed it first time might like to view :-)

What a marvellous snapshot of those times. I loved the little ones in the pram with their cloche hats!!
