• Short Summary

    Girls in swimsuits ride bucking barrel ponies, Waterloo and Victoria stations are contrasted with their countryside namesakes and men play roller-hockey in Rome.

  • Description

    Titles read: "Caught by the Camera".

    Various locations of events.

    Several shots of girls in swimsuits riding 'Bucking Broncos' - horses made from wooden barrels and suspended above a swimming pool by ropes. A man pulls on the ropes to make the 'horses' buck, and the girls have to stay on. A crowd of people in swimming costumes look on. (Location of events unknown.)

    In Monmouthshire we see the small country railway station of Waterloo. This is contrasted with several shots of Waterloo Station in London. We then see several shots of London's Victoria Station, which is contrasted with another Victoria station, again, in the Monmouthshire countryside. At Penzance railway station, a man blows a horn to signal the departure of the Cornish Riviera Express train.

    In Rome, Italy, we see men playing hockey on roller-skates before a large crowd.
