  • Description

    Item title reads: " Village Folk Singers and Dancers from Holland, several making their first train and boat journey - arrive for a great Folk Dance Festival. "

    Harwich, Essex

    Sequences are shown of the dancers on board the deck of the ferry, performing one of their country dances, going round in threes and pairs in a square. The girls and women wear long dresses, shawls and large white caps. One smiles at the camera. They are then seen posing for the camera and coming down the gangplank with their luggage. They make their way along and wait on the station platform at Harwich, Parkeston Quay and pose again.

    Note: A fine example of Dutch caps!
