An amateur film made by Victor Sidney Carman of various events of relevance to him taking place during 1951. The film records a family trip to the beach at Whitley Bay and views of terraced streets both in Wallsend and Batley in West Yorkshire where children are filmed playing in empty plots possibly the result of World War Two bomb damage.

The film ends with crowds looking over two Royal Navy ships moored along the Newcastle Quayside.
