This fascinating film, (in 2 parts), was uploaded to YouTube and depicts the local area and wider area, and gives an insight into the local mines. On the second part of the film, you get a glimpse of Berry Street, and how it used to be. The film is filmed from all over Fife, mainly in the Cowdenbeath, Lochgelly, Cardenden, Dunfermline areas.

The YouTube user had bought a 16mm Film Reel from a car boot sale, and managed to capture the footage to digital media. You can view the 2 videos, below or visit the YouTube pages at:

    Very interesting! Both of the blk & white videos, enjoyable, seeing the mining areas…some areas have never changed, but some I didn’t recognise. The car designs were great to see, and also the style of clothing. Really good videos.
