A typical Lancashire village scene. Sadly these children would be orphaned the following year; the girl sent to a distant relative and the boys to an orhpanage, they would never see each other again.

This extract comes from Claude Friese-Greene's 'The Open Road' - originally filmed in 1925/6 and now re-edited and digitally restored by the BFI National Archive.
