1929 Higland Games Banff Springs Hotel Alberta [03:19]
Footage from my film collection I had digitally transferred from way back in 1929 of the Banff Highland Games. Games held at the Banff Springs Hotel. This was a 3 day event at the end of August including Scottish concerts and special Scottish meals at the hotel as well as standard events. There was always a church service conducted in the open air at the Devil's Cauldron conducted by Ralph Connor (Dr. CW Gordon). These were big events in all aspects. Pipers came from across the country and even a few from Scotland. So too with dancers, travelling long distance by train to attend these gatherings. Up to 8000 people flocked to the town of Banff and the Hotel to be a part of this festival, among the most highly acclaimed North American Highland Games in those years.
Our Lady's Well St Mary's Monastery Kinnoull Perth Perthshire Scotland [00:42]
Tour Scotland video of Our Lady's Well at St Mary's Monastery Kinnoull on visit to Perth, Perthshire. It was during the early stage of the building that a remarkable incident took place. In October 1867, a Mr Turnbull who owned the land which overlooked the new site, diverted water that flowed from his land through the Redemptorist property, and which wa essential for the stonework that had to be undertaken to build the Monastery. He also threatened legal action in order to prevent the continuation of the building. The small group of Redemptorists felt helpless in this hostile environment, and eventually turned to Mary, the Mother of God, in the hope that her powerful intercession would come to their assistance. One the final day of a Novena (nine days of prayer) to our Lady of Perpetual Succour, one of the Lay-Brothers struck a well whilst planting potatoes on the hillside, and a continuous flow of water appeared. This spring water still flows today, and has ever since been called "Our Lady's Well".
