Summary

Scenes filmed at the christening and home of baby Andrew, with his mother, grandparents and other family members.

Description

Outside a church in Hove [?], a mother holds her baby, Andrew, after his christening. The baby's grandparents approach, giving a thumbs up to the camera. The priest is seen, holding the baby in the doorway to the church. Family members pose for pictures. Andrew is seen in a bouncer chair wearing an adult's pair of glasses. A newspaper rests on his lap. His mother gives him a bath in a plastic tub and dries him with a white towel, wrapped round him like a blanket.
