• Short Summary

    A woman perfects her swimming strokes in a living room using a specially designed frame.

  • Description

    Titles read: "Dryland swimming".

    Pathe Studio, London.

    In a set of a living room we see a woman in a swimsuit lying on a contraption that supports the body while you learn to swim - or perfect your swimming strokes. The frame was designed by WJ Howcroft, "the well-known swimming authority".

    The woman demonstrates breast stroke, the front crawl (with correct breathing) and back crawl. It all looks quite funny!
