Description

The films represented here by amateur filmmaker Ronald Pringle appear to be additional footage, possibly edited from other films in the collection shot between the 1960s and 1970s.

The film opens in black & white with a couple playing in a garden with their two children.

Colour footage follows of a demolished building. A very short section shows a younger and older woman in a street and then back to a view of the demolished building taken from a high angle.

Film cuts to a winter scene viewed across a lake, then to Highland cattle in the snow. A sunset follows taken across a sea inlet or loch.

The film then cuts to students during rag activities in Glasgow, followed by footage of water skiing competitions.  A brief sequence shows mountains with speeded up cloudscapes, followed by footage with deer in a forest.

The film cuts to views of photographers taking pictures of the Sacre Coeur in Paris, followed by other views of the Moulin Rouge and Montmartre.

The film cuts to dinghies sailing on a loch, or the coast.
 
A short section follows of household electrical appliances on display. Two girls walk towards the camera alongside a display stand.

Back to Paris and two buskers play guitars next to the River Seine.

The film cuts to a bride or bridesmaid leaving a bungalow followed by a wedding at King's Park Parish Church in Glasgow.
A man on a mountainside looks through a telescope at a girl sunbathing on boat.

Cut to Gaping Gill in North Yorkshire and a descent into the chasm by bosun's chair.
 
The film ends back in Paris and the Arc de Triomphe where a ceremony is taking place, possibly connected to World War Two as a number of people queue to sign a book.
