  • Description

    Titles read: "Water Scooter - And what a scooter, too, is this novel outboard flyer".

    Location of events unknown - somewhere in England?

    Various shots of girls in swimsuits riding about a lake on a water scooter. They stand upright and hold onto 'reins' at the front of the scooter while a man sitting behind them works the motor. Looks like good fun!

    One girl gets dipped into the water as the scooter takes a nose dive. She and the motor operator start swimming!
