St Ives in a bygone era: short film by Alban Roinard

A wonderfully clever short film made of St Ives in Cornwall, superimposing old black and white shots of the same views, made by Alban Roinard of St Eia Films and posted by St Ives Films.

St Ives is where I often do all my best poetry and music performances for the May Literature and September Arts Festivals with Charles Shaar Murray and friends, and I know it well. So it's fascinating to see my old haunts as they were a century or more ago.

Also a must-see for anyone familiar with the town and Porthmeor Beach, here's The Boilers of the Alba.
