Description

This is a film of the Green family on holiday in Conway, North Wales.

The film begins with three girls – Moyra, Shirley and Linda – waving at the camera from a train carriage.  A train is shown leaving and then the train ride is filmed from on board.  The family are then shown leaving their holiday accommodation and walking to the beach.  The girls dig in the sand with spades, joined by their mother.  The family walk around some gardens and visit a zoo and a fairground, with a large ride called ‘Cyclone’.    The children go on some rides and then walk to the sea, where they go swimming and go on donkey rides. Children are watching a Punch and Judy show.  The family walk along the sea front, the girls in their school uniforms, and to the beach where they again dig in the sand and paddle in the sea.  The girls are shown in turn in close up.  The film comes to an end with a sunset over the sea.
