Whilst we were in York, we went to the Castle Museum. For £8 we spent a wonderful couple of hours wandering around old Victorian streets and well-thought out exhibitions. I took lots of photos but one thing that I found really touching was a home video in the York Way of Life exhibit.
I have no details for it, because stupidly I forgot to right them down, but it was basically a ten-minute loop of edited family home videos from the 1950's. A country life through weddings, hula-hooping, playing with animals and dressing up in their Sunday best, all in amazing techni-colour that is so rare in vintage film.
Does anybody know of any online archives that have more of this type of thing? I would love to watch more.
