An item about a model miniature village made from cement and scrap.
Fred Slaymaker has made a miniature village using cement and scrap.
Various shots of a model village. A broom comes into shot, sweeping the streets - highlighting the smallness of the models. M/S of Fred sweeping. Fred is seen working on the ramparts on a model castle.
Various shots of a miniature fairground. C/U of a carousel with a "breadboard base". A little girl is seen turning a handle that makes the fairground move. Panning shot of people looking at the village.
Fred is seen clipping the miniature trees. Various shots of a little girl wandering around the village.
According to the paperwork, Fred's village appeared in a black and white Pathe Pictorial, no. 354 released on 25/06/1951.
Colour Pictorial - CP 388 - also features a story about a model village (which explains the weary tone of the narration - "Oh dear, oh dear - a model village").
Cuts exist - please see separate record.
