  • Description

    Oxhey, Middlesex.

    We see part of a collection of wooden bygones at the home of Edward and Eva Pinto. Starts with a sign 'Respectable Woman Wants Washing' shots of women turning handles on a roller press in a wash house and a woman putting a sock on a stocking airer and hanging it up.

    Shots of schoolgirls looking at the bygones and playing with old puppets. A boy plays with a wooden engine.

    We see a Chamber horse designed to exercise the legs, a man sits on it and bounces up and down on the seat full of springs. Another man brings a long stick which opens out into a Georgian library ladder.

    Note: There is another item about these wooden bygones called 'Pinto Collection' in Colour Pictorial - CP 185 on Pathe Master tape *PM0077*.

10 telling images selected from British Pathé's extensive WWI footage. 'The war to end all wars' was a war without parallel: over 70 million military personnel were involved and over 17 million people died.
WW1
Verbal warfare at its best. Here are some of history's greatest retorts and snarling insults. These people certainly didn't mince their words!
