The ‘Daily Mirror 8’ at Bude 1937

Wonderful old 16mm footage posted on YouTube by Adam Spry and filmed by his grandfather Frank Wroe. The ‘Daily Mirror 8’ were a group of female gymnasts who toured the country. On this occasion they perform at Summerleaze Downs, Bude. There is an excellent photo of the occasion here on Bude Past and Present (which gives the date as 1936).
