  • Description

    Eltham, London.

    Woolwich Recreational Institute where teenage boys are having a carpentry lesson - building canoes under the guidance of woodwork instructor William Wright. Shots of boys aged between 16 and 21 using hammers hand drills and saws to build the canoes and then paint them.

    Boys arrive on bicycles with trailers supporting their canoes at Danson Park Lake, Welling. Great clothes some of the boys are wearing matching bobble hats with their woolly jumpers. They all get into canoes and then seen in water paddling towards the camera. (Commentary says sights like these are a glowing tribute to the much maligned youth of today).

    Please note there is no print of this story.
