This short film shows workers repairing a vandalised signal box at a Level Crossing in Portslade and women being dunked into water on a seaside amusement game on Brighton Seafront, in scenes filmed by B. C. Suter in 1988.
This film shows workers sat on the top, repairing the roof of a dilapidated signal box at a level crossing in Portslade. On the side graffiti reads "1878-1988". A wider shot shows a train passing along the track and traffic passing over the level crossing past the signal box.
The second film shows Brighton Seafront, with several men standing at a seaside amusement (The American Dunker) throwing balls at a target, to drop a woman dressed in white clothing into a pool of water below. A man throws a ball and hits the centre of the target, releasing the woman into the water. The film closes with a view of Brighton Seafront showing a large anchor statue on the promenade, with the Palace Pier behind.
