  • Description

    A title informs that Coventry has the "largest married Ladies Swimming Section in Britain". Doors to changing cubicles open and a large number of women dressed in matching swimsuits and hats emerge on to the pool side. Lovely! The women line up on a stand by the side of the outdoor pool. They wave to the camera. They dive in, swim and fool around in the water. Some of the women practice their "life saving" technique. Intertitle reads: "All married ladies and able to hold their own anywhere!"

    Was item in Eve's Film Review issue 342.

    Note: this is a great film. The women are all obviously having a great time. They are mostly rather large ladies!

    Two safety print exists - one is a show print. Probably to be found in the "Thing of Beauty is a Joy Forever" roll.
