I sit with the ice pack at the top of spine, comforting the tight muscles around this bony point.
A British Transport Film. Work in Progress-1951 British Transport Films is on YouTube on LMS 4767, a marvelous channel. He/She has compiled some extraordinary films depicting British life from roughly 1938 onward. These are what we call Industrial Films, promotional films put out as public relation pieces for business. As such they depict a perhaps inaccurate “perfect” world. But such a lovely world it was.
Men wore caps and hats, suits, neckties. Women wore skirts and hats. Almost all of the ladies used makeup. Sometimes there was smoking depicted, usually the gentlemen.
Since this is Britain, the attention to landscaping, gardening, and horticulture is meticulous.
Postwar Britain was a long period of recovery from the war,coupled with the implementation of Labour (Socialist) initiatives like nationalization of the railroads. These films show pride in the British way of life. At the end I am longing to live in a village in Somerset.
