This film from 1947 captures a holiday in Bournemouth, England, and includes shots of the Redhill Hospital, the Downs, a trip to Bournemouth and Stonehenge and some stunning shots of Salisbury Cathedral.

Father Reid (later Monsignor Reid) acquired his first ‘movie’ camera in the mid-1930s. He continued to film a wide variety of subjects until the 1970s. He filmed in the United States, where he lived for most of his life, and also religiously documented life in Ireland with family and friends during his regular trips home. His films include holiday and family activities against the backdrop of beautiful Irish scenery. He also captured holidays abroad in France, Spain, England and Italy.
