"endeavouring cinematically to depict the freedom of the open air as a contrast to the mechanised life of the city during the working week. The treatment in the hands of Mr. S. Sharples was a departure from the usual run of films, as there was exploitation only of natural media and no particular caste was featured. By rapid acceleration and accurate timing of sequences the effect of stimulation and movement was produced. This film was submitted to Mr. J. Grierson, of “Drifters” fame, and in a very candid criticism of it he wrote “… one of the most intelligent amateur films I have seen" (Anon 1931: 183).
