This clip from a silent, colour film showing scenes around Winchester in 1964 can be viewed in the "Gallery" section of this item. It is taken from a collection of Winchester Museum amateur films showing various areas of the town. The reel shows various streets in the town centre, and the inside as well as the outside of Macfisheries supermarket.
The clip, 2 minutes and 45 seconds long, begins in St George's Street. The Casson Block is featured, and traffic drives down the street - today it drives up the street as part of the one-way system. The clip switches to the Broadway, with a view of traffic and the bus station. There are scenes of shops in the High Street, including Macfisheries, on the site now occupied by Next. Traffic can be seen driving up the High Street, today largely pedestrianised. There are views of the Pentice, and the clip ends at the Buttercross.
The complete film can be viewed at Wessex Film and Sound Archive at Hampshire Archives and Local Studies.
This collection comprises audio and video tapes as well as DVDs.
