British Pathé collection: Lincoln through the ages

Peek into the past: Footage of Lincoln dating as far back as 1935 is documented on YouTube by British Pathé.

In what’s now the largest archive of history on YouTube, fragments of Lincoln’s past have been chronicled as far back as 1935.

Some 80,000 historic videos have been recovered and documented by cross-media company British Pathé, taking viewers through the milestones of the 20th century.

In the completed Lincoln archive, the city is captured in black and white news reels, which have been restored and digitised.

Here’s a nostalgic look back at events of the past including a royal visit and exciting horse races and Bomber Command processions.
