Of many commendations, Producer Andrew Blow likes this
one: "I bought it as a Christmas present for my parents. On Christmas
morning, they couldn’t stop watching it. They played it through three times
consecutively - pausing it only to put in the turkey".
DVD One includes memorable footage of the High Street in
the late 1920s and mid-1930s. Look out for the horse and cart passing the
Stonebow – and the bus that’s still got its starting handle!
Hull City v Lincoln City on the day in 1946 that League
football resumed after the war.
The lorry that knocked down Newport Arch in 1964. If you
have a family link to engineering, enjoy Rustons shopfloor in 1950 - and the
return of Ruston steam engines, built in Victorian times, to the works in 2000.
See the Races and the Fair in 1962 – and enjoy a Lincoln
lad’s visit to Butlins at Skegness soon after it opened in 1936. A DVD that is
great value for anyone who loves Lincoln.
