Documentary about the inhabitants of Volendam.

Shots of Volendam, Urk, Spakenburg, and Marken were very popular in the early years of film. These villages had much to offer filmically, including their special traditional costumes, picturesque houses, and a charming fishing harbour. In an age where romance and strong traditions were still very much alive, towns like this stirred the imagination. In this film, the Volendammers get a chance to show what they can do.


Compilation film about Heerenveen.

Compilation of a few short items about the city of Heerenveen. The items were probably assembled in subsequent years by a distributor or exhibitor. We see:

• Footage of the carnival in Heerenveen. Much attention is paid to the assembled audience, who at the end of the item are invited to visit the Witte Bioscoop in Heerenveen. This film was presumably produced by this cinema. Local films like this one were often produced during the early years of film.

• Harness races in Heerenveen, and the horse market in Oudeschoot on Whit Monday.
