Round the Wirral with a movie camera 1934, really good video even though it a series of promotions.

Swann Dairy, Mount Road Co-op, Birkenhead Co-op, Allansons, Mount Motor Company, Birkenhead Park, Grange Road and more.

I enjoyed watching that, it felt so civilised and quaint Deffo for the middle classes though. I could watch all these kind of nostalgic films all night.

Good viewing. Remembered the bakery work from the 60's, I used to do work there when home on leave to supplement my leave pay, or should I say to supplement the breweries'.

Strange title "Round Wirral...etc". Very little of Wirral.
I wonder who promoted it? Maybe the Chamber of Commerce.
Wonderful commentary by Mr. Cholmondeley-Warner.
Interesting terminology for a mortgage: "you pay your rent in the normal way and after a given period the house becomes your own".
On a personal nostalgic note, the view of the Mount Rd. Co-op, from the top of my road, Ben Nevis Rd, with the woods behind which after the war became the Mount Estate.

Fascinating bit of film. I wonder, in view of the title, whether it was just a clip from a much longer film.

Fantastic find,really enjoyable. Does anybody know if the Mount Road garage featured in the film the old Cheshire Brothers site that is now a newish housing development?
