    Titles read: 'SUMMER HATS - LARGE OR SMALL?'

    United States of America.

    Two blonde women stand facing each other in half light. The lights come up as we see they are both fashionably dressed, with one wearing a small white lace Juliet cap and the other a large, lace-trimmed cartwheel hat. Commentator speaks of "the battle raging about this year's summer hat styles" - should they be big or small? C/Us of each hat and model.

    We then see them wearing similar hats - one a huge cartwheel, the other a bit more understated, both trimmed with lots of flowers on stalks around the rim.

    Lastly, we see the pair facing each other in black straw worked into a trellis pattern - one a large cartwheel, and the other a pretty, close-fitting, almost cloche shape, with a large rose and flowers at the side.

British Pathe captured many extraordinary events on film over its 80 year history but sometimes the cameras were switched on when tragedy struck.

With just days to go before Scotland makes their big decision, Pathe looks at the best of Scotland.
