Video of Aberdovey in the 1920s

A  very battered piece of black and white footage that I stumbled across on YouTube, from Huntley Film Archives (catalogue number 1092610), showing scenes of Aberdovey and the estuary in the 1920s.  There’s no information about the video, so just watch and enjoy.  The footage of the steam train is particularly evocative, with the trail of steam flowing like cotton wool behind the locomotive.

There is some amazing footage on the Huntley Film Archives on all manner of subjects.  It is worth going to their home page ( and browsing randomly through their categories.  I particularly liked their Quirky and Rare categories.
