  • Description

    Full titles read: "18 year-old Girl Channel Conquerer! [sic] - Miss "Laddie" Sharp swims Channel in remarkable time of 14 hrs. 58 mins. ...just failing to beat Miss Ederle's record."

    Dover, Kent.

    Various shots of Laddie Sharp swimming the Channel. She is helped out of the water and wrapped in a towel - she looks exhausted and freezing cold, but manages to plant a kiss on the cheek of a man in swimming togs - her trainer or father?

    Wearing a hat and coat, Laddie is helped up some steps to the quayside, where a cheering crowd greets her. M/S of Laddie (looking a bit warmer!) with a group of people.
