    Children play at keeping house at a nursery.

  • Description

    Titles read: "KINDERGARTEN!"

    Various shots of children playing at keeping house at "an Empire school", acting out the roles of a mother and a tired businessman husband coming home from work. Two little girls set a table; a boy enters and reads a newspaper with a pipe in his mouth. One of the girls takes two dolls out of a cot. Jokey commentary makes comments about the battle of the sexes. The children sit at the table to eat some bread and butter (?) and drink tea. The boy tries to change the baby doll's nappy.
