Description

This brief film is part of a collection that records a family from York's trips to the coast and countryside around North Yorkshire. The films were all shot by the Lord Mayor of York's son and are a child's view of these days before World War Two.

The film opens with shots of a large house which is being constructed in a field with trees. There are shots from outside the house showing the scaffolding and the missing roof. Some of the footage has been taken from inside looking up at the rafters and the sky between them. A 1930s-style Austin car drives up a road in the direction of the camera.
