Summary

Scenes filmed in a domestic garden in around 1937 by an unknown film-maker, at the family house in Cookham, Berkshire.

Description

Fish swim in a garden pond, full of lily pads and pondweed. Water pours into the water from a statue of a young girl holding a shell. Women walk in the garden and through the rockery, tending to the flowers and inspecting the grasses. A couple walk down the stone steps in the garden arm in arm. They peer into the pond below the flower beds, which are seen in a series of slow pans.
