Description: Amateur overview of a picnic meeting between Edinburgh and Carlisle Cine Societies.

ECVS file ref 16/65, date written here. Note in file and can: 'Usual type of record of a very happy affair in wonderful sunshine. Plenty of close-ups of people not identified today, but the camera is rather restless and seems to pan over everything and everyone. What is remarkable is the great number of folk present at the picnic, and even allowing for half from Carlisle, the numbers are greater than one expects today.'

One of large library of films amassed by Edinburgh Cine and Video Society since their inception in 1936.
