In Burlington, Texas, 1937, children play games in the school yard. Adult citizens of Burlington work at local stores and banks, taking breaks to visit on the sidewalk. 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.
