    Titles read: "WATERWAY ART!"


    Various shots of artists boarding a boat on the River Thames for a watercolour Pool of London painting tour organised by artist Edward Swann. Nice shots of girls posing on the boat as it moves along. The boat is moored near the Prospect of Whitby pub at Wapping; good shots of the artists sketching.

    Edward Swan instructs a woman who is painting the Cutty Sark sailing clipper. Two women sit knitting while the others paint. The skipper of the boat looks over an artist's shoulder. Good scenic shots of the River Thames at sunset, sailing barges on the water, the London skyline.
