This reel shows canoeing on the river Thames in London, followed by several family scenes showing a woman with a young child in a garden, as filmed by Ernest Shippam in 1933.
A man paddles in a canoe on the river Thames with Waterloo Bridge visible behind. A man takes photographs, as another holds a box reading; "C. Shippam Ltd. Chichester". Views of Big Ben (Palace of Westminster) and the river follow. The shot returns to the river where a man boards a canoe and two further canoes are pushed off from the riverside.
The final sequence shows Mrs. E. Shippam playing with her daughter Ann in a garden, as she pushes a trolley of stuffed toys across the lawn. The child's nurse accompanies the pair in the garden. Later, the young girl and a man (C. Ernest Shippam?) run across a bridge together. This is followed by scenes of mother and daughter kneeling on the grass.
