Matthew Atkin photographs the outrigger canoes of Olango and Mactan

Here are some more of my brother’s stunning photos from the Far East. Today’s shots of mainly outrigger canoes – mostly what are known as bancas – come from Olango and Mactan in the Phillipines.

Thanks Matt!

Humber Highway, 1956

Humber Highway

This documentary film by Betty and Cyril Ramsden chronicles the places, activities, and life around the Humber estuary of the mid-1950s, including Spurn Point, Paull, and the docks at Hull.

There are some lengthy titles that explain some of the important facts about the areas in which they filmed.

My thanks to Chris Brady for spotting this one.
