  • Edwardian Folkestone at play 1904 04:16

    Edwardian Folkestone at play 1904

    Date created: March 7, 2008

    Footage from the dawn of the film age: sea bathing, Edwardian beachwear, strolling along the prom and riding the rollercoaster in this view of 1904 Folkestone. No singing of 'Oh I do like to be beside the seaside' though. It wasn't written until 1907.

    Date created: March 7, 2008

    The Canterbury Tour 1920 Part 2

    Date created: March 7, 2008

    Shot from the back of a truck, this film takes the viewer from one end of 1920 Canterbury to the other, through, in this extract, some pretty heavy traffic as cars, pedestrians, bikes, horses and the omnibus all head down the medieval streets at the same time. Pity the poor policeman standing in the middle trying to direct it! Watch more footage from our Film Archive or get creative in our Editor's Room at http://www.learningcurve.gov.uk/focuson/film/
