Scope and Content
Item is a digitized silent film segment identified as Reel 8. Most of the film is in black and white but switches to a pinky hue about 3/4 of the way through. The film footage provides views of road travels with the Digney family as they drive around Ontario and into Detroit via the Windsor Bridge. Footage includes travels to Niagara Falls and the power plant, the gates of the CNE and the Toronto skyline, a scene in Quebec where the Digney car is being loaded on board a large ship, followed by glimpses of life aboard the oceanliner as the family travels to England. Once in England, the family is seen enjoying a picnic with relatives and the film cuts and ends with a scene of a polo match.
