A Touch of Colour for Smallford Station 1933

A Touch of Colour for Smallford Station 1933

With the recent find of a film titled, “Monty’s Misfortune”, 1933 footage of Smallford Station was rediscovered for the first time in many years. Visible in the footage, the Station was clad with several advertisements but determining what they depict is not clear on a few. A little detective work later, several of the adverts have been identified as you can see from these retrospective stills taken from the 1933 film. A little Photoshop magic later and the colourful adverts have been superimposed over the film frame to demonstrate a bit of colour the 1933 footage was unable to capture.
