Film ID: YFA 5674 FAMILY 1930 Visitor TabsDescription This is a film of a family at home, and includes footage taken at Meadow Bank, Brick and Moody’s farm, Newstead, Roehampton, and the Norfolk Broads. The film begins with a man and a woman out walking their dog next to a large country house. A girl emerges from the house picks up the dog and takes it for a walk, followed by a man emerging from the house and doing a dance for the camera. The film switches to show two men shovelling either coal or brick, or some such similar material, into a small wagon. The wagon is then pulled along a miniature railway track by a chain, while an empty wagon is similarly propelled back along an adjoining track. A man pushes a trolley laden with bricks onto the back of a van. This is possibly footage related to Robinson Brick Company in Rotherham. The film switches again back to the house where the girl and a man are playing with the dog in the garden, where there are also some wandering geese. This is followed by sheep and lambs being fed. Two men and a woman are in conversation before we see several women in summer dresses playing a game of throwing a ring to each other in the garden. There is a large seated crowd and a woman feeding birds on her hand. Women are having a picnic near some water, possibly the Norfolk Broads, where another woman is out on a rowing boat. A group of deer runs across a field. There are lots of women and girls seemingly having a picnic at a large country house. A couple are out on a boat with a sail on a large stretch of water, together with a man and a woman, possibly father and daughter, who are out on a rowing boat. The film switches to a beach, possibly Filey, where people in swimwear are wading in the sea and larking about. A group of five women and three men pose for the camera. Then we see a woman peeling potatoes. There are more sailing boats, with two women out on a rowing boat, and then two women walking along a country path, with the camera tracking them. The film finishes showing a turkey and some chickens.
