A busy scene showing groups of people relaxing on Teignmouth Beach. The clothes are typical of the Victorian period. A small boy, paddling on the right, is wearing a sailor suit. There are rowing boats in the water and bathing huts at the water's edge. Some of the huts have advertisements for Beecham's Pills.
