  • Description

    Beaconsfield, Buckinghamshire.

    Full titles read: "THE SUPER MODEL ! - filmed at Beaconsfield. - An unkind wife once declared a model husband was a small imitation of the real thing - but this model village and railway is unique in its completeness."

    Good L/S's of a small steam locomotives moving along on miniature railway, it certainly is very detailed.

    Intertitle reads: "'Many months have been spent on building this miniature,' said the designer, Mr Callingham, 'but I recommend this hobby to anyone with a garden'."

    Several shots of miniature lighthouse and bridge and miniature model cows grazing in a field. M/S's of the small narrow streets. L/S's of visitors walking around the model village and examining the Elizabethan style architecture of some of the buildings. Various more L/S's of the small steam trains.

    Note: I think the model village is known as Beaconscot - JH.
