Carveth enjoyed filming the
activities of local children.
Many of these activities and
games seem unusual to young
people today. Some of the
games played were the “Coin
Toss”, “Ring-Around-the-
Rosie”-“London Bridges” and
the “May Pole Dance”. As
well, he filmed many school

sports events and local
activities such as chasing
chickens, playing with white
rats and training a dog to
jump on a stool. As a result,
the NVDHS produced this short
documentary on these
activities.
