  • Description

    Titles read: "NOW OUR Special Section for the LADIES - Feminine pictorialities No. 13. "In the Springtime - " a woman's fancy turns to HATS!"

    United States of America.

    C/U of a woman wearing a Dutch cap / hat made from draped alpaca and angel skin fabric. C/U of an old sailor wearing a Breton hat, then we see another woman wearing a modern take on the Breton, with a "rakish flamingo quill" in the brim and a "dangerous tilt of the brim" - very flattering. The woman takes a puff of her cigarette and blows smoke into the camera.

    London (?).

    We then see the silhouette of a woman behind a curtain as she puts on a bathing costume. She comes out of a changing tent and three other women help her to do up her two-piece swimsuit, tying the halterneck and fastening poppers. Commentator explains the suit is made of rubber. On a set made to look like a beach, the four women (all in white or two-tone rubber swimsuits) play with a beach ball, then sit down to have a cup of tea and a cigarette and pose in their swimming costumes - very nice!

    Note: female commentator.
