• Short Summary

    Charladies clean offices then have a knees up at Clapham Manor.

  • Description

    Titles read: "LONDON - MRS MOPPS' OWN BALL".

    London.

    General view in the early morning under the arches of the Admiralty. Inside we see several shots of charladies working to clean the Government offices - using vacuum cleaners, laying fires and so on. Mrs Cracknell dusts a large statue of Nelson. Mrs Mahone washes the floor with a cloth.

    We then see various shots of a huge crowd of charwomen enjoying themselves at Clapham Manor swimming baths (actually looks like a large sports hall). The cleaning ladies jig about, having a good knees up and flash their legs and stocking tops at the camera. Nearly all are middle-aged to elderly.
