Snow fun: schoolboy japes brighten a wintry Victorian day.

Non-Fiction 1900 1 mins


Snow fun. This comic Victorian interest film sees a spirited group of Yorkshire lads make the most of a snowy day and a steep slope. The item is one of a handful of scenes of schoolboy larks filmed by Holmfirth-based Bamforth & Co. As in many of the most captivating early films, movement itself is central to its method, meaning and charm.
