  • Description

    Issue title is PATHE PICTORIAL LOOKS AT THE PASSING YEARS.

    Location of events unknown.

    Various shots of scruffy little boy, Dave, having his fortune told by a fortune teller woman in gypsy costume. She reads his palm, looks into crystal ball and even reads the bumps on his head (this makes him laugh as it tickles!). Dusty, Dave's small dog, sits watching. The dog gets impatient and bites Dave's shoes. C/U of dog sitting next to two empty tea cups covered in tea leaves.

    Note: one of a series of "Dave and Dusty" stories, probably made for younger audiences.
