  • Description

    "Where are the girls of the old Brigade? Yesterday, Eve unearthed one of the earliest lady acrobatic turns, the Sisters Danief. Meet them - (in the year 1905!)" A female acrobatic troupe performs in front of a painted backdrop. They do a balancing stunt, four girls balance on the body of one other - a rather large woman. The girls do some tumbling.

    "Twenty-seven years ago, these ladies of the "Viola" Brigade amused our parents with just the same old tricks you see today. More gymnastic tumbling. "No slimming those days - for Adam preferred Eve as she was built - not an amended specification!" Three girls link arms around each others' waists and tumble. The girls do some forward rolls and bouncing around.

    Was an item in Eve's Film Review issue 572.

    Note: this is a film from 1905 with intertitles added in 1932 - a kind of "look back" at the act.

British Pathe captured many extraordinary events on film over its 80 year history but sometimes the cameras were switched on when tragedy struck.

With just days to go before Scotland makes their big decision, Pathe looks at the best of Scotland.
