• Short Summary

    Young girls of the Cape Town Sunshine Club do exercises on Clifton Beach.

  • Description

    Titles read: 'Something Specially for the Ladies! FEMININE PICTORIALITIES NO. 43 - HEALTH and Beauty'.

    Cape Town, South Africa.

    Various shots of the Cape Town Sunshine Club - a group of young girls who go to Clifton Beach each day and do exercises in formation. Good shots of the girls doing stretches and postures and leaping about at the seaside.

    Good for illustrating the health and fitness craze of the 1930s.

    Cataloguer's note: Britain just doesn't have the weather for this sort of thing. The Bognor Drizzle Club doesn't have quite the same ring.
