  • Short Summary

    An icy dip for crazy swimming enthusiasts.

  • Description

    Item title reads: "4 Degrees Below Zero...and men, women and children of the Manchester Brownies Club still enjoy their morning dip"

    United States of America (USA).

    A group of swimmers in matching vested costumes stand near some water with snow and ice everywhere. Some dive and jump in. They must be mad! There are some slow motion shots of people jumping in. One makes a perfect dive from a platform on a cliff with the icy landscape in the background. A second diver does a handstand on the board and also dives in. The group pose together laughing, one puts a huge block of ice down his vest, while another pretends to drink from another block.

    Note: What a feat of bravery and endurance. Would it cut any ice with the winter viewers.
