  • Description

    Lily Smith (swimmer). Location of events unknown.

    Sports. Swimming. Swimmer Lily Smith. Shot of 3 people swimming in a race (?); toward right; in a whole screen of water -- not a pool; but some large body of water. CU Lily Smith sitting on deck of a beach house; wearing a dark bathing suit and a spotted bathing cap; she is pretty heavy by modern standards. She hits the wall of the structure as if to get someone's attention; then she smiles & talks. Shot of Smith walking from the cabana toward water; past a crowd watching; and more of these beach cabanas that look like a row of gypsy caravans stretching along the beach. She walks into the water. Recreation; leisure.

    JENNY - I THINK THIS MAY ACTUALLY BE 1917?
