Children feature strongly in this film, in various aspects and activities. It is quite obviously a private family film, though the initial location is unclear. The first half of the film follows a group of children around a ‘close,' where houses are terraced together. One of the main features is of inflatable dolls; one is of Batman and the other is of a rabbit. The outside space of the courtyard, or close, appears to be reasonably new as the breezeblocks and concrete slabs are untarnished and unpainted.

Donated by the Miller family.
