• Short Summary

    Girl walks around London in the latest smog helmet from Paris.

  • Description

    Titles read: "LONDON - MASKS BEAT SMOG".

    Soho, London.

    Various shots of a girl wearing a new anti-smog mask while she wanders about the market stalls in Berwick Street. Reaction shots from people in the street. The mask has been imported by The Daily Sketch.

    A man lights the burner on side of mask that heats and cleans the smoggy air as it passes through. The fan near the burner is started and the girl and man begin to walk away from camera. They cross the street, then the man lifts the mask to kiss the girl goodbye.

    Nice shot of the girl in a coffee bar, drinking her coffee through a straw while a man sits beside her and enjoys the spectacle.
