Young vacationers show off the various sports played in Cacouna in the early 20th century. We can see cycling in the background and lacrosse in the foreground. To the far left and far right, there’s cricket and slightly to the left in the foreground, we see baseball, a typically American sport. A young child holds a ball on his lap.
