Black and white silent amateur films by Dave Tatsuno (1913-2006), a businessman in the San Francisco Bay area. Tatsuno's films, before 1942 and the forced exclusion of World War II, generally show family outings, sporting events, holidays, celebrations, and the family business.

This segment, from ca. 1940, shows the Dave and Alice Tatsuno and friends on a July trip to Yosemite National Park; people feed ground squirrels; emerging from a tunnel into the Yosemite Valley; Bridalveil Fall; a rushing river; Alice Okada Tatsuno and three men (Henry Tani in the center; replaced by Dave Tatsuno in white cap in next shot); (00:51).

Tatsuno's notes on this clip: "Yosemite - July; Wilbur-Henry-Roy-Tom".
