Scope and content
Item is an amateur film showing Margaret Magoffin and another lady coming down some stairs to the edge of the swimming pool and standing by the ocean at the Magoffin’s residence Rockhaven at 3612 Marine Drive, West Vancouver. A man is shown casting a line into the ocean several times, followed by Sam Magoffin and another man swimming in the pool. The film then cuts to footage of a desert-like area, people at a pool, possibly in California or Mexico, and horse races, likely at the same location. This is followed by footage likely taken at Rockhaven showing a golden retriever in the yard and swimming in the ocean, a campfire, and views of the house, garden and the Magoffin’s dogs.
Warping most pronounced at head and in second half of film (leading up to tail).
