  • Description

    A "Hockley" pink georgette evening gown with a white and silver lace coat is modelled.

    A woman arranges flowers, flouncing around in her floaty evening outfit. She comes closer to the camera and strikes a coy pose. Next up is an oyster charmeuse Court gown, with classical drapery. The woman modelling this is seen in L/S and C/U. A dainty bright rose evening gown with oriental embroidery is featured next. The model turns for the camera and sits down.

    A painted chiffon number with a pleated underskirt is the next outfit we see - the model comes in and shows her seated friend her new outfit. A black charmeuse evening gown with cream lace overdress, daintily finished with red cire ribbon waistband is shown. We see the feet and bottom of the dress in C/U then the camera tilts upwards to reveal the whole of the dress. The model turns to show off the back.

    Safety print exists.

August 2014 marks 100 years since the start of World War One. To honour this landmark occasion, British Pathé have launched this definitive collection of WW1 films.

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!
