Huge changes have taken place in Mexborough in living memory, as this film footage from the early 70s shows.
It is remarkable in capturing the transition between the old and the new, showing the High Street just before major reconstruction.
And it clearly shows that history is not always about faded pictures and sepia prints, but about change and loss; so in just one wonderful minute, the camerawoman has preserved a piece of Mexborough life which is now only a memory to people over 50, and unknown to subsequent generations.
The clip forms part of a terrific DVD - Mexborough Time Machine, which can be ordered here.
