This home movie collection captures scenes of a young David Moore and his brothers practicing horse riding in their Galveston neighborhood. The younger siblings have a challenge with sitting in the saddle of King, who is roughly twice their height. Later, the Moore family takes a cross-country train to San Francisco for a wedding. Both the ceremony and reception are captured, showing a little over a hundred people all standing in a manor’s backyard during the exchange of vows as well as a later performance by a string quartet while guests wine and dine.
