Abstract
Views of the beach and historic ships docked at Hyde Street Pier in Fisherman's Wharf, San Francisco. The steam ferryboat Eureka, the paddlewheel tug Eppleton Hall, and the lumber schooner C.A. Thayer are visible. On the beach sits a pregnant woman, likely Wendy from the film's title, and the film ends with a view of Alcatraz Island and a woman flying a kite. JoAnn Elam lived in San Francisco in the late 1960s, and this film was probably made during a visit later.
