"Thirty years ago - when even a ship steaming across a painted screen was a source of wonder to Eve of those days."
L/S of a pleasure steamer moving past the camera. "And when Adam and Eve came ashore - oh, the modes of the Maids of "98"!" M/S of passengers making their way down a gangplank onto the shore as the boat bobs up and down. "Small-waisted, long-skirted and queer-hatted - those were the days!" M/S of more passengers moving down the gangplank. "Casting off - steaming away into the shadows of the days of long ago - !" M/S of the paddle steamer moving away from the camera. No C/Us of the passengers.
Was an item in Eve's Film Review issue number 392.
Safety print only.
Note: presumably this is footage from 1898 retitled.
