Description

Reel #24 of the home movies in the Palmer Blair Collection begins with Palmer Blair, Jr., and Susan Blair swinging on a swingset at the rear of the new Blair family home on Poplar Hill Drive in Boone. At the 1:18 mark, focus shifts briefly to the new station wagon for Palmer's Studio. At the 1:42 mark, Palmer Blair can be seen briefly pushing Susan in the swing. At the 2:24 mark, unidentified relatives appear briefly at the Blair home. The focus then shifts abruptly at 2:42 to the shearing of a horse with a hoe, apparently at the Blair Farm, followed by Palmer, Jr., and Susan riding the same horse at the farm. Excellent views of the Deerfield Road valley appear at the end of the reel.
