This film features different scenes around York in the aftermath of a flooding of the River Ouse.
This film was made by George Trafford Drayton who ran the Tower Pictorial Cinema on New Street in York. The film features the annual trip hosted by the York Poor Children’s Fresh Air fund during which 2000 children travelled to the seaside in August for a day of fresh air. For many of them, they would be going to the seaside for the first time as this was a rule specifically laid down by the committee. Many of the children featured are likely to be underprivileged children from the Hungate area of York.
