  • Short Summary

    Lord Derby opens a new swimming pool in Southport and is treated to a display of bathing beauties.

  • Description

    Full titles read: "Lord Derby - opens magnificent new sea-bathing pool."

    Southport, Lancashire.

    M/S of Lord Derby cutting a ribbon to open a new swimming pool at Southport; the Mayor stands beside him and a large crowd sit in the spectator stand at the open-air pool.

    M/S of girls in bathing costumes and carrying parasols walking around the side of the pool; I'm not sure if it is a beauty contest - one of the girls takes off her cape and twirls about in front of Lord Derby and the Mayor as if they are judging a contest.
