Black and white silent amateur films by Dave Tatsuno (1913-2006), a businessman in the San Francisco Bay area. Tatsuno's earliest films, taken from August-November 1936 while he was an undergraduate at the University of California, Berkeley, show family, church, and school activities.

This segment (03:06), filmed August 23, 1936, shows an excursion to San Francisco's Golden Gate Park by Tatsuno with his father Shojiro, sister Chiye, brother Masateru ("Tut"), and friend Wilbur; feeding swans and ducks; standing on a Japanese bridge; seals at the San Francisco Zoo.

Tatsuno's notes on this clip: "One Sunday at Golden Gate Park. Characters: Dad, Chiye, Wilbur, Tut and Dave."
