  • Description

    Maidenhead, Berkshire.

    Title: "Ascot Sunday. Famed Boulter's Lock ... a kaleidoscopic scene of colour and beauty".

    M/S of a canal lock crowded with punts and rowing boats, the lock keeper stands on the bank waving his arms frantically. Various shots of people in boats; all Hooray Henry types in cricket sweaters and striped blazers. High angled C/U of two punts containing three young women and a dashing young man. M/S of the flotilla of boats moving through the lock, crowds watch from banks and bridge in distance. Various shots of the boats moving through the lock and along the canal, including shots of a larger river cruiser. Mostly similar to shots used earlier in the item.
