Item is an amateur film opening with footage of downtown Vancouver showing several Vancouver Fire Department trucks and engines and a lot filled with lumber, then cutting to footage taken from the back of a moving train, showing snow covered scenery, followed by Sam and Margaret Magoffin standing on a porch with several other people and a dog, Margaret and a man standing in front of a car, and additional footage taken from a moving train showing a sign for Yoho, mountain scenery and the Cathedral train station. The film also contains footage taken in downtown Victoria, B.C. showing the legislative building, Inner Harbour and CPR Steamship Terminal building, followed by dogs, likely the Magoffin’s golden retrievers, and several minutes footage of a dog show.
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.
Item is a film showing various scenes around Vancouver. Footage shows the Georgia Hotel, the Court House (now Vancouver Art Gallery), a parade in downtown Vancouver, various scenes with automobiles, as well as some candid scenes in rural areas.
