  • Description

    Location unknown.

    A girl sitting at dressing table putting on makeup. She is Lillian Southcote, the strongest girl of her age in the country. As she walks on the stage, images of highland games sports change. Lillian exercises for a while before her father and another man appear on stage. Lillian bends metal bar with her neck. Then she takes the bar and bends it even more. Lillian takes deck of playing cards and cuts it in half, then she breaks a steel chain connected at one end to her feet and at the other to her neck. Lillian standing between two men holding two ropes they are pulling - she remains unmoved.
