• Short Summary

    Good footage of people in coats on the beach and enjoying fairground rides on a rather cold day.

  • Description

    Location of events unknown - could be Margate in Kent.

    Several good shots of people on a British beach, sitting in deck chairs or lying on blankets with their coats on. Probably a Bank Holiday. Commentator jokes,"'You'd think it was high summer". Various shots of people on rides at a seaside funfair - waltzers, roller coaster, car thing turning upside-down on the end of a pole and Ferris wheel - in coats, and wandering around the rather rain sodden amusement park.

    Cute shot of a little boy (or girl) in a beret, riding down a road away from the camera on a tricycle with a suitcase, bucket and spade on his back.

    Good shots for illustrating a wet and cold British summer - but the British carry on!
