  • Description

    No title. C/U of three girls in overalls holding small dogs in their arms. Camera pans to show other girls holding dogs. C/U of girl holding dog up to the camera. C/U of two girls, one holds a small dog (Pekinese or Pekingese?) making it clap its paws together as it sits on the back of a larger dog - black Labrador? The girl makes the Pekinese do a little dance. C/U of a group of a dozen girls holding dogs - cute. M/S of the girls, they are sitting on some kind of cart, other girls push the cart away from the camera. M/S of two women in ordinary day wear (rather than overalls) walking towards a kennel maid. One of the women picks up the dog the kennel maid was walking. C/U of the woman holding the dog.

    "It is both an indoor and outdoor job - and a healthy and interesting one, too - " L/S of the girls walking their dogs towards a bench. They lift their dogs up onto the benches. M/S of the girls crowded around a table. One of the dogs stands on the table. A woman teaches the girl how to groom the dog. "In this business, there's always a smile - pups (and their parents) are such cute customers..." C/U of the dog being groomed. M/S of the girls all brushing different dogs. Panning shot of the dogs being groomed.

    "Every phase of kennel work needs dealing with - plucking, grooming, feeding, exercising, etc." Panning shot of the girls hard at work. L/S of the girls walking towards kennels with bowls of food. M/S of girl stepping into the pens to put food down. "Altogether, it's great to be a pup, down here - !" L/S of some of the girls walking their dogs whilst others watch.

    Note: This is almost certainly a continuation of the story called "The Kennel Maid" on the same reel. Was probably therefore an item in Eve's Film Review issue number 528.

August 2014 marks 100 years since the start of World War One. To honour this landmark occasion, British Pathé have launched this definitive collection of WW1 films.

10 telling images selected from British Pathé's extensive WWI footage. 'The war to end all wars' was a war without parallel: over 70 million military personnel were involved and over 17 million people died.
WW1
Verbal warfare at its best. Here are some of history's greatest retorts and snarling insults. These people certainly didn't mince their words!
