The residents of Lytle, Texas and their daily lives in 1938-1941 are documented in this film. The primary focus of this film is footage of children and their teachers recorded in the classroom and in the school yard. Students are seen doing worksheets, sewing in home economics, and using tools in shop class. Close-up shots of adult residents are included as they stand outside their homes or places of business. This film is part of a larger collection of itinerant films made by Arthur J. Higgins. Higgins was an itinerant filmmaker in the 1930s and 40s who visited towns across the country with his wife, spending several days recording posed scenes of daily life there that focused primarily on the residents, for whom the film was typically shown at a local theater.
