Children are a main feature of the film, taken during a family holiday on the mainland. Of visual interest are the fashion designs and fancy dress costumes, which roughly place the date to the 1960s or early 1970s. There are other covert aspects of the footage which suggest a particular era; such as the presence of a well-established garden vegetable patch (which was still popular in the post-war years), and of children and young people gathering in gardens to play in.
