The British Pathé archive is the world’s finest digital news collection. All 85K films are viewable online via our YouTube channel and website.
Unlike the company’s other social media pages, the images on this blog are shown free of all description or context, allowing the images to speak for themselves. Some of them, out of context, seem really quite bizarre! Which is, of course, part of the fun. Take this one – “A Bath With A View” (1931). But each image has a link to the original newsreel which you can watch online and find out what it’s all about and see if you’ve guessed correctly.
We hope you enjoy looking at these images.
