  • Description

    Titles read: "Something for the Ladies! FEMININE PICTORIALITIES No. 26 - AFTER THE BATHE IS OVER".

    Location of events unknown.

    A girl climbs out of an open air swimming pool. She wears a bracelet on her wrist and we see her repair her make-up with the tiny articles contained in it. She first powders her nose with a minute powder puff. She puts on her lipstick, pencils her eyebrows, puts on some rouge (blusher) and files her nails.

    She then takes off her swimming cap and puts some perfume (contained in a little rollerball pen) behind her ears. She takes a small comb from the inside of the bracelet to comb her hair then spots a friend off-camera and saunters off to meet them. Commentator says "And so girls, you need no longer worry how you are going to repair the ravages of the sea, river or pool".

    This is brilliant!
