Rare film footage which captures the run-up to Christmas in Sheffield 53 years ago has emerged.

The silent British Pathe film shows Sheffielders gathering at the former ABC cinema and sporting a dazzling array of festive hats.

It offers a fascinating glimpse at the Sheffield of yesteryear, a far cry from the city we know today.

The film is part of a wealth of archive footage being hosted on British Pathe's Youtube channel.
