Family life including holidays

There is a considerable amount of film showing ordinary domestic scenes of family life in the region, going back to the 1920s, as well as the holidays people took. The South has some good beaches, of course, which are well represented in the seaside resort footage held by WFSA.

It all helps to build a moving picture of social life in the past, involving what people wore, how they behaved, the places where they lived, what they used in their daily lives, and so on.
