Dracula Fans in the 1970s

The video depicts a visit by The Dracula Society to Whitby on May 19, 1977 (NellyM 2012).

The society was founded in 1973 by Bernard Davies and Bruce Wightman—it’s also still active (The Dracula Society 2013).

Whitby holds a special place in the hearts of Dracula fans: Count Dracula landed there aboard the Demeter, to begin his conquest of England.
