Description

This collection of amateur films by Mrs Kathleen Arrowsmith offers a vivid portrait of rural life on a working farm in
Berkshire from the mid 1930s to early 1940s. Many of the films feature traditional hand and mechanised steam farming techniques to harvest grain and vegetable produce. The later films in the collection feature views of larger vehicles of the period, as well as views of rearing livestock and a variety of breeds of working strong horses on the family farm.
