This home movie dates from the 1930s or 1940s and shows images of Bisbee and Tucson, Arizona. It begins with a drive into Bisbee through Tombstone Canyon, with footage shot through the front of a moving car. The Bisbee "B" is seen at the 2 minute mark, along with the downtown and the Copper Queen Mine. At the 4 minute mark is footage of the San Xavier Mission near Tucson, a saguaro forest, and more. What might be Sabino Canyon is seen at the 10 minute mark, and workers seen in the vicinity may have been CCC or other WPA laborers who were employed building trails. Mud ruins seen at the 12:15 mark appear to be an abandoned village but might also be part of the set of the movie "Arizona". Adobe bricks are seen drying at the 13 minute mark. Residential scenes in Tucson follow.
