One thing that strikes me about those videos is how  much slimmer people were in general back then. Virtually none of the obese that we see with increasing frequency these days.

Its about availability and laziness. ...If you build it, they will come ... thats the principle I'm sure McDonalds work on.

Mmmmmmmmm  McDonalds,   :-* :P +}}{

Hmmmm...maybe you have to be a friend of the guy that posted it to see it then?  :(  I'll maybe ask him if he can stick it on YouTube so everyone can see.

I love those old Pathe clips.

When I saw the panorama of Llandudno and the gas tank in the distance, with the nearby incinerator chimney belching out smoke, it bought a tear to my eye.  :'(

Well, in an apparent display of insanity, he parades around town bizarrely dressed, with a stuffed monkey, with music blaring out.  An obvious nutter.... or is he?

You see, he seems to make the seemingly rational decision to change into normal smart-casual clothing, and walk up the pier each evening.  I have heard him chatting to people on very mundane and sensible topics.
I have also heard that he has his own Facebook page.

Can a person pick and choose when to appear mad?  Is he conducting some kind of social experiment? Is he a self-publicist?

Some good questions. I've seen him in normal clothes on the pier, too.
