• Short Summary

    Very quirky item about Mrs Cohen who dresses up as little girl and plays with local children.

  • Description

    Title reads: "Woolwich".

    Girl wife at Woolwich, London.

    Mrs Chebby Cohen impersonates a little girl and plays with the neighbourhood children.

    M/S of Mrs C. and group of children standing around a table covered in toys - dolls houses, cuddly toys etc. Mrs C. wears sailor suit dress and has big bow in her hair, she is very young looking and is indistinguishable from the other kids in the group. Mrs Cohen's husband enters, he looks like an ordinary man. He gives Mrs C. a kiss on the lips and she asks him for a cigarette. Bizarre shot of Mrs C. smoking - looks like a child smoking! Mr C. asks Mrs C. what is for tea. She replies in Cockney accent: "kippers and custard". They say goodbye to the kids and leave.

    Cataloguers note: This item is very disturbing - today Mr C might be considered a pedophile. Does not explain whether Mrs C is child impersonator performer or just a bit crazy! Extremely bizarre. AH 2001.
