Our Year – The Queen Mother Visits Dagenham

For our latest Film Fridays we’ve got a clip from the film Our Year, which was produced by the Dagenham Co-operative Film Society.

The clip focuses on a visit from the Queen Mother to St Elisabeth’s Church in Becontree on the occasion of the church’s 25th anniversary. On the 23rd May 1931 the Queen Mother, then the Duchess of York, had laid the church’s foundation stone.

There is no sound, enjoy the film.
