  • Description

    Full titles read: "ON LIFE'S THRESHOLD - Guiding baby footsteps in Sydney, Australia."

    Intertitle read: "If nations march on the feet of little children, there's a lot of fun nowadays in doing a little of the guiding - at any rate, these pictures of a famous Sydney Institution -------------." (Unfortunately part of the titles have been obscured by the time code).

    L/S's of children sleeping on hard floor, the narrator says it is "good for young bodies". Nice C/U of little girl tucked up fast asleep. Group shots of the children's kindergarten orchestra. M/S's of the children playing and banging a number of instruments (I think they need a bit more practice !). C/U's of children pulling faces as they sing a prayer before they sing. M/S of scruffy looking baby tucking into his food.
