One of the films was made in the grounds of Orangefield House, then a burnt-out shell with a scrapyard of cars.
I am very grateful to Matt Maginnis for the use of these valuable photographic relics, taken prior to the imminent demolition of Orangefield House, Knockbreda, Belfast.
I have written extensively about the Orangefield Park, once the home of the Blakiston-Houstons. They owned over 5,000 acres at one time.
