With a fascinating selection of old films of Southampton from the 1920’s to the 1950’s, some wonderful old photographs, and news stories from the archives of the Daily Echo, this entertaining DVD takes a nostalgic look back at a century of local life.
Among the many events brought to life in the DVD are; the days of the great Transatlantic liners; the sinking of the Titanic; the last days of the floating bridges; the heyday of the electric trams; the grand opening of the Civic Centre; the Second World War blitz of Southampton and the major role it played in ultimate victory.
We also see many scenes of Southampton folk going about their everyday business and many views of bygone Southampton that are sure to bring memories flooding back.
