A profile of the active shores of Mobile, Alabama circa 1935, this film highlights local parks, the work of the CCC, and the bustling commerce of the South.

Scenes of azaleas in bloom, old homes, ships at docks, and bales of cotton, barrels of turpentine, and bunches of bananas being loaded on board freighters in Mobile, Alabama, depict the states culture and commercial activity. The film shows a panorama of Gulf, Little River, and Cedar Creek State Parks in Alabama. Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC) boys work in the forests and operate tractors and graders in State Parks; picnickers eat on outdoor tables. An African American CCC boy dances.
