The North West Film Archive presents a look at some of the many films made over the years by, or about, this vital transport link, a crucial part of the region’s economy for most of the 20th Century. From early films made by local newsreel companies and interested amateurs, to the professional promotional films made for the Ship Canal Company themselves, the canal featured in many films over that time and the archive presents a selection of these covering the wide range of activities found along its length.
