This film captures the residents, schoolchildren, and local businesses of Belton, Texas, in 1939. The Belton High School Tiger Band also make a special appearance. The film was likely made by an itinerant filmmaker—professional filmmakers who visited towns across the country, spending several days in each town recording scenes of daily life that focused primarily on the residents, for whom the film was typically shown at the local theater.
