Report by 'Wilf' Thomas
on a film programme presented by a
Branch Manager: W A Camwell
 
 

On Tuesday November 12th, we were privileged to have another of Mr Camwell's interesting film programmes, entitled:

 

TRANSPORT - THE CHANGING SCENE

 

It was immediately evident how keen he is on his subject and his enthusiasm was quickly conveyed to his large audience. There is no doubt that "CAM" is a master of photography, particularly in the field of Transport. The programme was varied, ranging from Birmingham's Last Tram to the Highlands of Scotland, via Norway, Denmark, Germany, a Steam Tractor Rally and a Burton Brewery.

 

Among those present were Mr Robinson, the Chief Engineer of Birmingham City Transport Department and his two assistants. Mr Robinson has, on many occasions, afforded facilities to "CAM", without which some of his films would not have been made. We are also indebted to British Railways for the loan of both projector and projectionist. All contributed to a most enjoyable social evening.

 

Thanks very much "CAM".
