Plymouth Hoe in Video

This spectacular colourised film, shared by the BFI, shows Plymouth Hoe in 1924. It is a digitally restored and re-edited extract from Claude Friese-Greene’s ‘The Open Road’.

This silent video from British Pathé shows several shots of Plymouth city centre as well as the Barbican and Hoe from 1934.

In one shot we see the pier stretching out of the waterfront. What other differences can you see from modern Plymouth?

Finally, this charming family home video shows the popularity of the waterfront with swimmers and sunbathers in 1976.
