Harrow Heritage
The film is made as a celebration and history of Harrow and Pinner, with its famous historical residents. It is aimed at people who live in this area who may be unaware of the rich heritage of this area. The film seems to regret that Harrow has simply become a 'suburban centre' in the present day.

Eileen's Wedding 31st October 1955; Joan's wedding 31st March 1956
Great period footage of two suburban London weddings in these family films from the 1950s. Watch how people acted and dressed at weddings at this time – a particular stand-out is the shot of four young men with huge quiffs deep in conversation. Also has nice scenes of children playing, couples dancing, speeches, confetti and cake-cutting.
