Video - Preston Streets (2 of 2) March 1986. 90 seconds.

Part two of a video film taken in Preston Lancashire of terraced housing awaiting demolition. The two streets shown are Wellfield Road and Nelson Terrace. Nelson Terrace had a commanding view over the Strand road factory complex and across the docklands estate.

 

Apologies about the poor quality of the films. They were originally recorded on a first generation Betamax camera which was about the size of a large suitcase, and then subsequently tranferred to 8MM and finally on to VHS. (All prior to the introduction of image stabilization) Duration: 90 seconds.
