Description:
This intertitled home movie from Texas oilman E.B. Hopkins captures scenes of a family vacation to Miami, Florida in 1925. The family is in the Coral Gables area of Miami as the silent picture, The New Klondike, is filmed, resulting in scenes of alligators used in the film captured in this home movie. Scenes of a birthday party for real estate man Walter B. Hartness and a family production of Little Red Riding Hood are also included, as well as the family hula dancing, doing cartwheels, going to Coco Beach, and enjoying the brand new Biltmore Hotel in Miami.
