London in the 20's

Hello All,

This is not directly relevant to Warrenpoint but I think it's a very good link.

Its almost 10 minutes of London in the 1920's which I think is quite brilliant and imagine if we had similar footage of Warrenpoint.

I edited your link to let the video show up :D

Yep good video and I bet you somebody somewhere has some early footage taken here - think of all the thousands of people that visited and took photos, and indeed film in later years - hopefully some of it will turn up some day

Thanks Brian as I used the URL rather than the youtube link.....

Its probably not so unlikely that there is cinefilm out there and people don't know how to make it more available even if they would want to but plenty of people could help get it onto youtube or even on to their own DVD I am sure.

An uncle of mine took plenty both in London and a very small amount around here in the 50's and 60's and I am sure there is much more. The problem is that they generally have loads of reels that are unmarked !
