This film contains footage shot by Anthony Buckley of his visit to San Francisco in 1958–59. Visible are city views, the Golden Gate Bridge, fishing trawlers at Fisherman's wharf, Chinatown and cable cars at Powell and Market Streets. 

Three Buckley brothers – Horace Patrick (HP), Brian and Kethel Timothy (Keth or KT) – all took up the hobby of home movies in the late 1920s and early 30s. None of the brothers took up cinematography professionally.

Anthony Buckley, Kethel's son, started shooting 9.5mm in 1950 and 16mm in 1956 and was the only Buckley to enter the professional film industry in 1953.
