  • Description

    No title.

    Man seated on steps of a Gypsy caravan with two dogs and a cat. He pets the animals and turns their faces to the camera. One of the dogs is a Red Setter, the other a Terrier (?). Men lead some large horses into a courtyard. Buying and selling seems to be taking place. The man seen earlier then holds the reins of two horses smiling broadly - perhaps he has bought them? Man outside a shed saws a large piece of wood. Another man brings him a cup of tea. He stops sawing and drinks it. Intertitle informs that: "One of his hobbies is collecting antiques amongst which is an old Moorish gun of which he is very proud". Man walks towards a window of a sitting room admiring his gun. Man leaves house through the front door, shakes hands with another man on the doorstep. Man waves from his doorstep.

    Note: because all but one intertitle are lost, it is impossible to say who the featured man is. Seems very much in the style of an Eve's Film Review "At Home With so-and-so" story. Probably an actor or sports personality.
