  • Description

    This is a duplicate of item 1373.34 - check for best quality.

    Bournemouth, Dorset.

    Crowded beach at Bournemouth. Various shots of girls playing the new game of sea cricket. The girl batting stands on a raft, the fielders stand in the shallow water, the scorer writes on a blackboard on the beach. People watch from the nearby pier.

    Includes joke about how Old Trafford not now being the "wettest wicket".

    The game has been invented by Bournemouth councillor Joe Beavis (unsure of spelling).
