  • Description

    "Thirty years ago - when even a ship steaming across a painted screen was a source of wonder to Eve of those days."

    L/S of a pleasure steamer moving past the camera. "And when Adam and Eve came ashore - oh, the modes of the Maids of "98"!" M/S of passengers making their way down a gangplank onto the shore as the boat bobs up and down. "Small-waisted, long-skirted and queer-hatted - those were the days!" M/S of more passengers moving down the gangplank. "Casting off - steaming away into the shadows of the days of long ago - !" M/S of the paddle steamer moving away from the camera. No C/Us of the passengers.

    Was an item in Eve's Film Review issue number 392.

    Safety print only.

    Note: presumably this is footage from 1898 retitled.

British Pathe captured many extraordinary events on film over its 80 year history but sometimes the cameras were switched on when tragedy struck.

With just days to go before Scotland makes their big decision, Pathe looks at the best of Scotland.
