Description:
This home movie from the 1940s captures scenes of a Wells family day at the lake, likely Moss Lake near Gainesville. The family spends time on the porch of their lake house, where Margie and Harris Peyton Wells play with a dog, then play a lively game of poker. Later, the couples travel to a construction site, labeled The Pat Wells House, and then to the Gainesville Community Circus, where Margie and Harris Peyton take turns pretending to sell circus fares, including balloons, toys, and shaved ice.
