Description

Why don't you come along to the Ulster Folk & Transport Museum? Remember, all you need to bring is a little imagination. Two children rescue an old woman from a gang of young bullies.  She rewards them with a magic ring which enables them to "see things not as they are, but as they were."  Along the way the pair encounter all many of quirky characters and witness quaint customs.

Notes

Twin brothers Roy and Noel Spence have been making films like this for over fifty years; with subjects including crafty leprechauns, creatures from outer space, fifties rock 'n' rollers and the undead. This film is held in the Irish Film Archive.
