This is family footage of Monty Georgeson's 12th birthday party in 1955. It starts off with children playing in the garden, with a baby in a lace shaw, before moving indoors to a birthday tea party in the sunporch of Clairmont House.

Film-maker: Mitchell Georgeson

Donated by the Georgeson family.

One of the rare indoor clips from the collection - it's interesting to see the birthday teas laid out in 1955. The children are clearly having a great time, which makes it an uplifting watch!
