Rural life through the lens

Stumbled across the Worsley Collection of film documenting life in the village of Hovingham in the 1930s.  Search for ‘Personalities in Hovingham Village (1930s) at the Yorkshire Film Archive.  18 minutes and 54 seconds of insight – moving images can and do give a new insight into our more recent past.
