Scope and content

Amateur film. Footage of Fairbridge Farm children at work and at play at the Cowichan Station school, including farming scenes, Guy Fawkes Day celebration and costume parade, harvesting, cutting hay, swimming, baseball, picnicking, and an outdoor ceremony (possibly graduation?) at the Fairbridge Chapel. This reel appears, in part, to be a compilation of shorter film items made by A.C. Lincoln and credited to "Fairbridge Pictures". The titled segments are: "Autumn scenes, Prince of Wales Fairbridge Farm School, Cowichan Station, V.I., B.C."; "The day with 'Boy'" (about a sheep herding border collie at a nearby farm) "Down by the Kelvin Creek" (children playing in creek, and playing baseball); "Hay Ho!" (on the hay harvest); "Our Water Babies" (more water sports); and "The Picnic, Cowichan Bay" (which shows the children walking to Cowichan Bay, eating lunch, swimming and diving, and visiting the abandoned "Butter Church" at Comiaken Hill).
