  • Description

    "What a poor old festive season it would be without a touch of holly!" Deep in the New Forest we found the holly harvesters."

    Various shots of girls harvesting holly in the New Forest in Hampshire. They pull down holly trees by hauling on ropes and cut down single branches. They tie the holly into bunches. Finished holly bunches are loaded on to horse and cart with pitchforks. Horse and cart move off through forest with girls walking alongside. Cute end shot of two young children carrying holly bunches walking towards camera. This is presumably shot around Christmas time.

    No C/Us of the girls but nice pictorial quality to the shots.

    Safety print exists.

    Note: flash-frame intertitles. No stock mark so date unknown. Was an Eve's Film Review item.

    This item was probably the item "Holly Harvest" listed in issue sheets for can EP002.
