Scope and content

Item is an amateur film which begins with what appears to be scenes from an advertisement for the British America Paint Company (BAPCO): a BAPCO building is pictured, followed by the intertitle "For Three Generations Bapco has served the West with quality products," followed by a shot of a portrait of W.J. Pendray and men in suits walking around a garden. A shot of a ship then precedes the intertitle "At Bapco exists constructive cooperation between Western Canadian capital and Canadian technicians and craftsmen in producing quality products carefully formulated to meet the exacting requirements of the West." Following shots include an office with people typing, reading papers, and working at their desks; chemists working in a lab, including shots of titration into a beaker and an oil centrifuge; and cans of Satin-Glo paint. The latter half of the film is footage from Douglas Scott's time in Hong Kong, which includes shots of junks, rafts, and sampans on the water; a Buddhist temple; a steam ship; the Scott's Hong Kong house; Margaret and her mother by the shore; grape picking; waves rolling against the shore; and the Scott family swimming, including slow motion shots of diving in the water.
