At the moment there is a huge project underway to find, catalogue and digitise family movies from the Centre region in France. This is not only highly important in terms of social history, but the results are amazingly interesting and fun.
The following film was shot in Preuilly and the Brenne in 1933. Anyone who knows the town will instantly recognise the setting.
The rest of the archive can be found here. Not all the films are from Centre, but all are interesting, some are significant, and some just plain fascinating.
Just don't spend the whole day watching them!
ps. it snowed yesterday, but not enough to be worth photographing. We had to find inside the house things to do.
