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. 1937, shows the Tatsuno and Okada (?) families and friends on a picnic in the hills above Oakland, California; driving eastbound over the San Francisco-Oakland Bay Bridge; the picnic; sunbathing (Alice Okada covers her face with a newspaper; Dave Tatsuno, in bathing trunks, lies next to her); the Tatsunos' white dog (01:16).

Credits: Dave Tatsuno Collection, Gift of Dave Tatsuno, in Memory of Walter Honderick, Japanese American National Museum (91.74). Preserved and made accessible in part by a grant from the National Film Preservation Foundation.
