    No title.

    M/S of two girls sitting in a punt floating down the river. We then see "...the rowing girls of the Metropolis, hardy and strong." A group of girls run towards their rowing boats, then climb in with their oars (or blades). They row off.

    "In weather good, bad, or indifferent, these Eves "take to the water" as readily as Adam." M/S of group of male rowers carrying their boat to the water. Behind them is what looks like a pub. Sign reads: "Waterman - by appointment to his majesty." Girls follow behind in jaunty scarves and hats carrying oars. Another team of girls carry their own boat. Various shots of girls carrying boats, getting in and rowing off.

    "No soft hands need apply," is the motto here!" Various shots of women rowers. Low angle shot of six of the rowers standing on a balcony waving at the camera. They wear black and white striped scarves.

    Was an item in Eve's Film Review issue number 501.
