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.

This film captures a family gathering at a house with shots of a group of men, women and children of all ages seated in a garden. They smile, wave and stick their tongues out at the camera. A little girl sits posing with a kitten.

Two girls play on a rocking horse while one of the men rocks it back and forth for them. A row of women are sitting in the garden, and a young girl is jumping up and down in front of a young man.

In the final shot the young man is on the see-saw with three younger children.
