Scope and content

Item is an amateur film containing footage of the construction of a swimming pool at the Magoffin’s residence, Rockhaven, at 3612 Marine Drive, West Vancouver, and Sam and Margaret Magoffin swimming in the pool with friends. The film also shows Margaret standing in front of Rockhaven. The film then cuts to footage of a sign reading “Multnomah” and then to a street scene in an unidentified city showing cars and people and a group of young boys looking up at the camera. Also included is footage of three men standing near some bunkhouses in a desert-like environment, perhaps near Magoffin’s Lyon Creek project, as well as some track and the outside of a tunnel and equipment. The film finishes with a view of a railway trestle and track and one man sitting in a car and one man standing next to the car, in what appears to be the same location.
