  • Description

    London.

    Various shots of top milliner Aage Thaarup sitting on the steps of the Albert Memorial with a girl; he is sketching a hat in the shape of the Royal Albert Hall, seen opposite in L/S.

    Several shots at Aage's workrooms in Chelsea show the hat being made by Aage and a woman assistant; Aage puts the finished hat into a hatbox with tissue paper. He then takes the hat to the girl at the Albert Memorial; nice M/S of him waiting on the steps while she rushes up to meet him. He shows her the hat and puts it on her head - it does look quite like the Albert Hall!

    Note: on file is a magazine article about Aage and the making of this hat - for a different girl!

Verbal warfare at its best. Here are some of history's greatest retorts and snarling insults. These people certainly didn't mince their words!

British Pathe captured many extraordinary events on film over its 80 year history but sometimes the cameras were switched on when tragedy struck.
