Outdoors in 1926
« on: April 09, 2014, 08:29:56 PM »
Beautifull short piece of archive film from the mid 20s, in the Lake District.

For me, that moment at 1:55 perfectly captures why I love to hike.

I'm just waiting for somebody to say - "Wait, not a walking stick in sight;D

According to comments (unverified), one of the men in it was Jerry Wright (Details in Link Below)

And the bridge appearing at the start of the film is said to be Ashness Bridge (Image Link Below)
