Four films showing family scenes and the Colmans Carrow works.

A man and a boy outside a substantial house on Unthank Road, Norwich. The boy rides a bike. A dog accompanies them and a car is parked outside. There are street scenes of Unthank Road. The man and boy leave the gate and traffic passes by on the road. The next shots almost appear to follow on but show a girl on a bicycle. An elderly lady and gentleman come out of the front door, above which hang two hanging baskets. There are close up shots of members of the family, several of who are smoking. In the final shot a man and his chauffeur get into a car in front of the house. This pulls out onto the road. A family excursion on a boat on the Norfolk Broads at Wroxham. There are shots of Wroxham Broad, taken in front of Ernest Collins a family on board a boat, feeding the swans; people are sailing, diving into the river and fishing. There is a shot of a woman with a parasol aboard the boat. This section concludes with close up shots of the man with the handkerchief knotted on his head and of the woman asleep. The third film shows shots of a country house. There is a car parked outside. At the Colmans' Carrow Works in Norwich, people arrive for work and a steamless train is seen inside the yard. Apart from the train, there is a horse and cart apparently making a delivery. There are several lorries and vans, one of which carries an advertisement for Colmans' Barley Water. Shots of the River Wensum alongside the Works by the Boom Towers, show tugs moored. There are shots of the Works over the City Wall and showing river scenes. Shots of the street outside the works show several motorcycles passing. There is an advertisement for a cricket match to be played at the Lakenham Cricket Ground. There is a close up shot of a man and two women followed by a shot of a Georgian terraced house, possibly on Bracondale. After a shot of another substantial house there are further shots of the works. The film finishes with a static shot of an advertisement for Colmans' Barley & Groats, propped up on a lorry.
