The original script was read by an actor, recorded, and added to the digitized footage to create this film.

Photograph of a parade float with ten young girls seated on the side of the float. Each girl holds a pole with a letter at the top, spelling out "PLAYGROUND". Below them are letterings at lower part of float that spells out "…OUVER CHILDREN NEED PLAYGRO…" (likely spelling out "Vancouver children need playground"). A part of a crest is visible above the girls, "HU--NY INCORPORATED 1670" It appears to be the Hudson's Bay Company crest. There is a Union Jack at right, and the float is going past a hardware store along a street with railway tracks. The event and the identity of the girls are not known.
