Product Description

Southampton in the Past Vol. 2 (incorporating Totton & Waterside areas). The second volume of Southampton and area contains clips from the 1900s, 1920s, 30s, 50s and 60s – Lord Baden Powell’s personal appearance at the Boy Scouts’ Rally in 1912, news of the Titanic disaster the same year, coronation celebrations of HM Queen Elizabeth in 1953, plus Hythe, the famous pier and ferry in the 1920s. Stunning post-war footage of the ‘village’ of Totton as it began to develop, the last steam-hauled train on the Lymington-Brockenhurst branch line, strike-bound liners in 1966 and much more! Narrated by David Ellery
