    Item title reads - Women's International Lawn Tennis. South Africa v. England at Johannesburg.

    Ellis Park, Johannesburg, South Africa.

    M/S as Britain's Peggy Scriven (on the left) walks onto the tennis court with Hine Miller. Various shots as they play and Mrs Miller wins in two straight sets, they shake hands at the net.

    M/S's of people sheltering under umbrellas and tarpaulin sheets as the rain sets in. Various shots as they pull the tarpaulin back from the court, a man runs on pouring paraffin over the court because so much water has leaked through it has to be burned off. A man sets light to it and it burns in a line. Various shots of a doubles match which South Africa win, they go on to win the second test by five matches to two.

    Note: the soundtrack to this item is missing.

    "Hine Miller" in text and tags should read Bobbie Heine Miller.
