Star Item
  • Description

    Part of issue title SO THIS IS LONDON.

    Pathe Studios, London.

    Item about stockings through the ages. Various shots of old fashioned stockings: primitive fur socks, stockings from 14th century, Elizabethan and Georgian eras. Various shots of glamorous models wearing modern silk stockings with suspenders. We see a model posing for a photographer taking a picture for a stockings advert. Narrator explains legs are held up the air to stop any unsightly bulges being photographed! More shots of girls' stockinged legs with titles superimposed over top. Titles reveal lots of fascinating stocking facts such as how many are bought in Britain and USA each year and how many times you could circumnavigate the globe with this amount.
