Description

This is a short film of the Hancock family at home in Leeds.  It includes footage taken in the home of Addie and her mother collecting stamps as well as a billiards game in March,1936.  

The film opens with the mother seated with her daughter in their living room.  She is helping her to identify different stamps for her collection.  They each look at the stamps, and the little girl puts some into a book.

An older man is playing billiards.  He takes a shot before the rest of the family joins him to play.  Two women each take a shot followed by another man and a younger boy.  They continue to take shots in turn while the others smile and look to be enjoying themselves as they play the game.
