A Virtual Museum - Your Town, the Borough and its History
Alan Bruce was an excellent camera man and narrator and produced an excellent cine with sound titled 'A day at Sea' back in 1960, he was also a keen steam ferry enthusiast. Contact was made with Alan a number of years ago about using his footage for a DVD on Gravesham which he kindly gave his permission. The DVD project developed into this website where now everyone can see his spendid cines on Gravesend Ferries.
