• Short Summary

    Rather painful initiation into the Ancient Order of Coopers.

  • Description

    Full title reads: "GOING THROUGH THE HOOP - Members of the Ancient Order of Coopers initiate a new colleague."

    A man held by two other men is thrown into a barrel - many others around. Coopers bang on the barrel's hoop with their hammers lowering it - a man inside suffers a terrible noise. It also look very dangerous - if only one misses?

    The poor man is later lifted and placed over a steaming barrel, he tries to lift himself up while other Coopers laugh.

    The man is thrown into the barrel and rolled around pretty fast. He is taken out and lifted in the air by his 'friendly' colleagues. He is now admitted in the Ancient order of Coopers.

    Coopers drinking in health of their new colleague.

    Note: Film is severely damaged - extremely poor quality.
