For my school project I need footage of an 1800s dock with old-fashoined sailing ships at it. I've been searching for at least 2 hours already, but I found nothing useful. Does anybody know any good documentaries or movies that have footage of docks? Thanks!
so I wasn't able to find any footage from the 1800s (probably because video was very new and not too common back then) but I have found some old footage of docks which I think might be of interest.
London's Lost Docks DVD clip (1980s)This is about a minute of a Documentary about the London docks and may be of use.
Britain's finest hours: The battle of Trafalgar
This is a recreation of a battle between the UK, Spain and France overseas in 1805.
Another video on the battle of Trafalgar and is using a game to try and recreate the visuals:
Lastly here is some footage from Liverpool docks in 1950
I hope this footage can help and if it doesn't I am sorry and I fully agree that finding the footage is hard XD
Have a nice day.
