In Days Of Old

Film In Days Of Old by Ben H Humble

Here is a black and white silent movie taken by Ben H Humble in 1958 and commemorated the 50th anniversary of The Ladies Scottish Climbing Club. It features members of the club climbing on The Campsies in 1908 Edwardian dress. After a simulated sleep the ladies awake to see the contrasting styles of 1958 !

This film is slightly tongue in cheek as the ladies, tired after their climb, fall asleep - for 50 years!
