Transport Worldwide: On The Move


“Some beautiful paths can’t be discovered without getting lost.”

— Erol Ozan


Discover the world of Transport through time with Bridgeman Footage. From across the world we present clips documenting the various forms of travel used throughout history.

You’ll find 70’s documentary footage, home video travelogues, early black and white footage of experimental transport machines, contemporary clips of motorways, country roads and more.

Our archive of exclusive footage clips is growing all the time so there is always something new to discover!




From 1970’s documentary footage to colour footage of concorde and rare footage of Amelia Earhart, there’s something for all aviation needs in this lightbox!



Highlights in this lightbox include dramatic, sweeping footage of passenger trains speeding through swedish countryside and monochrome footage of steam trains making their way through snowy locales. You’ll also find colour and contemporary footage too.



Contemporary clips of cars, motorways and country roads can be found here, as well as footage of vintage cars in cities.



From battleships to summer yacht travelogues and passenger liners, there’s something for everyone in this lightbox – regardless of where the wind takes you!



Trams – or streetcars as they are known in the US – are the main feature of this lightbox, seen trundling along in cities worldwide. Both contemporary and early footage is represented here.



Distinctive dirigibles, once a highly prestigious mode of transport are rarely seen used today for that purpose. Airships of all kinds – from passenger zeppelins to advertising blimps are seen here.



A showreel to get you in the travelling mood, featuring archival and contemporary HD material from Bridgeman Footage – always on the move.
