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 a good shot of Whitby lighthouse, harbour and pier. The sun shines from behind the lighthouse to create a dramatic silhouette.

The following shots are of a boat out in the water and some narrow streets in Whitby.

The last shot is taken from the dock area where the fishermen come on shore with their catch of fish.
