Or maybe just look on the page where it says "About this video", where it asks you to join or log in to download?

interesting to see that when they were short of labour (when it was VERY manual) they shipped in office workers from the cities.
How things have changed :)

Some good shots of the old Gliderdrome as a skating rink. If you want to see some really good film of old Boston, try and get a copy of "One of Our Aircraft is Missing" Made in Boston during the war with Boston being depicted as a Dutch town. Great shots of South End, Jean Ingelows house,the warehouses along the river near the Town Bridge and one of a German sentry on the Swing Bridge as the airmen attempt to escape down the river. I remember watching some of the filming from the Town Bridge, gor blimey matron, that shows my age.
