Private film collections from the 1970s – Collections

Delightful personal family footage: Mom, Pop and two small boys beginning to discover the world around them.

Sometimes our job is like Christmas: a carton of Super8 films labelled “Garden” or “Istanbul, Mexico, America” or “Christmas 1970” turns up. We have no idea what kind of treasure has been entrusted to us until the material is scanned. Only then do we find a small family surrounded by Christmas presents, enjoying winter holidays, hiking on tidal mud flats, celebrating children’s birthdays and Easter. We see the sons as newborn babies and as they take their first steps, splash around in puddles, topple headlong into sand, meet dogs and chickens, squabble and cuddle. This terribly nice family wins over hearts.
