Description

"Cineshots of 1936"

The film shows views of the landscape and cars driving along a country road. A woman holds a bunch of flowers. A group of people smile and wave at the camera while having a picnic. Deer can be seen walking into a forest.

A swan swims on a river. People walk through a large garden. A family have fun at the seaside. There are scenes of Newhaven Harbour (?) in winter. Adults play leapfrog on the beach. They play in the sea and on the beach.

A view upriver of Newhaven Harbour shows cross-Channel steamers and the (since demolished) London Paris Hotel in the background. The two-funnelled passenger steamer ‘Newhaven’(?) sails in from Dieppe, revealing glistening paint work.

There are more coastal scenes, including views of chalk cliffs. A crowd watch sheep dog trials. A group of people sit on the beach reading magazines. Two women sit on a wooden groyne and dip their toes into the sea. The film ends with a shot of a waterfall.
