  • 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.

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!
