Plymouth born Reginald Blackett has been a film enthusiast for most of his life. A good job too, because he has lovingly preserved for us the incredible images on this video dating back to the 1920s. Not only did he preserve them, but also carefully transferred the old master material to 16mm film, sometimes frame by frame, so that future Plymouth generations could enjoy their heritage.

In this film we are treated to the antics and capers of people of old Plymouth as they romp through Plymouth, Devonport and Milehouse in a pram push. The 7 O’clock Regulars are featured in their daily swim gear at Plymouth pier and a host of people of the past doing daft things. Considering its age, the film images are of very good quality, but it’s the antics of our ancestors that make this film a fitting record of Plymouth’s Roaring 20s!
