  • Description

    Intertitle reads: "Why do people speak in whispers of these dainty articles of feminine wear? Making them, provides endless opportunities for deft fingers".

    A woman cuts suede into small shapes to make leaves. These are then "veined" with hot metal. We see a C/U of woman making lines on the suede with a metal tool previously heated over a flame. Woman cuts strips of fabric and sews the leaves on to pieces of elastic. The garter is presented to the camera. A tassel is also shown. This is sewn on to the garter. The finished item is shown in C/U. We then see the garter on a leg.

    Intertitle reads: "But here's a novelty for the advanced garter enthusiast". The camera pans up from a woman's feet to show her lifting up her skirt to reveal an ornate garter. She takes something out of the garter which turns out to be a tiny powder puff! She powders her nose. We see her using the powder puff in C/U. Very cute!

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.

Verbal warfare at its best. Here are some of history's greatest retorts and snarling insults. These people certainly didn't mince their words!
