Extra! Extra! Read all about it!

The first of two articles on ‘Dreaming Spools’ has been published today in the Oxford Times Online, and in today’s Oxford Mail paper.

As we discussed in the article, we are extremely grateful to William Lorton, for contributing such fantastic footage of the Oxford Steamers in 1944, filmed by Major James R. Savage during the war. Most colour film during this period was found in America, as it was hard to get hold of and expensive, so it was rare for 16mm colour cine film to be around in Oxford, and to capture such great images of his experience on the steamers on the River Thames.
