  • Description

    "What skirts - what sleeves - and my hat!"

    M/S of some swingboat rides at a funfair - early footage, presumably shot in Brighton in 1896. M/S of a fairground ride - the galloping horses. People walk in front of the camera. "And when Eve really wanted to cut a dash, she blew along on this - "

    Strange fairground ride - people sit astride bicycle contraptions which travel along a track as they cycle. L/S of a roller coaster ride. People travel towards the camera on a carriage. They are helped off at the end - not a very scary ride!

    Was an item in Eve's Film Review issue number 428.

    May be a safety neg - Julian to check.

    This was originally filed as UN2 (N) - to be changed in books.
