This is a film showing street scenes in Hull and of Pearson Park in Hull, from the John Turner Collection. It shows children playing, the Hull Fair, and a Hull University students vs. staff football match, and an event in York.
The film begins in Hull Fair, with people on the rides and playing games, such as darts and on a rifle range. People are riding on the dodgems, and playing a game to win gold fish. There is a large queue at the chips stall. A group are huddled over what appears to be a table football game. The film then returns to the derelict area, with workmen building near some caravans, where a girl sits looking through a picture book. Some toddlers run around a garden, and small boys play in the rubble. Two small girls play at making tea on a doorstep. In the background there is a church with a tower. The builders are mixing up cement. Children climb through wire get to a large pile of logs. There is more washing hung out to dry between the houses. A girl runs off with a sandwich.
