Lincolnshire Film Archive has released a series of fascinating DVDs showing life in the twentieth century. Volume One, written and narrated by Alan Stennett, covers the century's early years, with film dating back to as early as 1901.
Grimsby trawlermen bringing home their catch, hats and dresses 1904 style, vintage motor cars and horse-drawn traffic in Lincoln, quarrymen working entirely by hand, but proud of their steam-driven lorry; industry that led the world with products designed and built in Lincolnshire, like the first caterpillar tracked vehicles, there are royal visits, Coronation and Empire Day celebrations, Great War recruitment and early aviation, Isaac Newton's bicentenary, early Lincolnshire shows, all the fun of the fair and seaside holidays, a children's party in the 1920s...
And its true what people say about the old days, things were really different then. The policemen were actually taller, holiday-makers wore their best suits on the beach, and an aeroplane used to be something you could pick up and carry.
