Cruising in the 20th Century Dvd, Part 1

Amateur Film.

Part 1: The Early Years - 1930s to 1950s

In this series of programmes we are looking at cruising during the 20th Century.

Part One features three fascinating films taken in the 1930s in black and white.

Followed by three more films, filmed in colour, taken in the late 1940s and 1950s.

You will not only see life on board but also follow the passengers ashore in various ports around the world.

You will observe their very formal dress code, blazers and flannels for deck sports for the men, hats and furs for the ladies, despite the heat, when going ashore.

The films have been collected by Joe Clark, who himself served in the Merchant Navy and also travelled as a passenger.

Now retired Joe and his wife Queenie, cruise whenever time and resources permit.
