This home movie, likely shot in 1956, captures the Barbee children playing outside. One young boy, having previously undergone a leg amputation, demonstrates his crutch-using skills, quickly moving across the yard and tending the field. Later, the boy shows off for the camera by doing somersaults and handstands.
