Film ID: YFA 625 G.L.W 1937 - 1938 1937-1938 Visitor TabsDescription This is a film from the Michael Hobson collection which features his family out on day trips and holiday in various places out in the countryside. The film begins with two boys in a garden, and then a man lighting a cigarette. Two women pick some flowers and the boys ride around on roller skates. They are joined by another smaller boy. The film switches to show crowds at a horse event with a hunt. Boys walk alongside the hunters and their dogs. The film switches again to show the two or three families sitting in the sun by a mountain stream. Two boys clamber over the rocks and some small girls collect things from the ground. They all settle down for a picnic before playing some games. Next, some are people walking around what looks like a large greenhouse, and then a street with a large hoarding (the writing cannot be made out), in front of a large building. Three children are playing, and the family have a picnic next to their car. A man leans against a fence with a cup of tea, and a woman walks along holding the hands of two children. The family seem to be visiting a park or the grounds of a country house which has a wall with the inscription, ‘God Save the King’. Some children are playing, watched by adults, and then there is a sign for Piece Wood Road. A large group of children walk along the road, and then have a tug-of-war. There are adults as well at what seems to be a local event. The children are being handed something, presumably prizes, by two adults as they file past a table. Children have a snowball fight before there is footage of a family group walking along a country lane (without snow), and a man posing for the camera with a boy. There are more people, possibly out on the moors. A car drives past and again we are back at the camp site and the stream. The boys place a glass container over a bowl, possibly having collected some fish from the stream. The campsite and nearby houses are shown, with the family walking around a park lake. There is traffic, including buses and a tram, in a built up area. The film finishes with the family on Scarborough beach.
