  • Short Summary

    Over 100 girls compete in a cross country race in the wooded outskirts of Paris.

  • Description

    Item title reads: " Girls' Cross Country. Over 100 girls compete in opening meet of the season."

    Paris, France

    M/S group of girls line up for the start of the race. They run in a line, and struggle uphill through some woods, and out onto a roadway. At the end, six or seven girls happily gather round a barrel to wash their muddy legs.

    Note: Was this daring at the time to see such sport, women running and getting muddy?
