The film shows the film-maker's daughter Margaret (aged about 3 or 4) walking down the steps of a house carrying a small dolls house. This is followed by adults enjoying a tea party in the garden, held on Whit Monday in 1935. Margaret is then seen playing with a friend (named 'Baba' on the film label) in the garden. One of the girls is holding a 'golly' doll. The girls can be seen to be playing what looks like 'ring a ring a roses..'. At a station, people board a train (described as 'To Boscombe from Wellingborough June 1935' on the film label). At Boscome in Bournemouth the resort's coast line is filmed and Mrs Newman and her daughter are seen heading for the beach. On the beach, Margaret plays in the sand and paddles in the sea with her mother. Margaret then watches toy boats on a boating pond. We then see her pulling her own toy boat along the edge of the pond. After further beach scenes, the Newmans board a ferry taking them around the Isle of Wight. Further scenes, filmed in 1936, show Margaret playing on the swings with other children and playing with toy prams with another girl. The final scene shows a woman ('Marjorie') riding a bicycle.
