Film collection by Charles Chislett (a bank manager from Rotherham, Yorkshire) of holidays and trips to the Yorkshire Dales in 1940s. No imbd reference, but released on 43 minute DVD -

with some extracts also on Yorkshire Film Archive - http://www.yorkshirefilmarchive.com/film/dale-days , http://www.yorkshirefilmarchive.com/film/dale-days-cpas , with reference to a longer 63 minute version. All my captures (and timings) are from the 43 minute DVD, which has a modern voice-over with some details. Claimed to be possibly the first colour footage in Yorkshire by an amateur, most is 1940/1942 family holiday(s), plus a small extract from 1949, and a few miscellaneous snowy sequences (maybe 1947??). Very evocative of its time - apart from kids frolicking in fields, wood and rivers, there's several castles, waterfalls, farming bits, making Wensleydale cheese etc.

Probably unidentifiable?? (but feel free to prove me wrong):

The rear view of the truck could be anything, but the pedal car is unmistakeably Lines Bros (aka Triang).
