  • Description

    Titles read: 'PEEPS THROUGH THE WINDOW OF THE WORLD'.

    Various locations of events.

    In Italy we see several shots of a man feeding swallows at a breeding ground near Rome. The birds feed from the man's hands.

    In the United States of America we see various shots of model aircraft flying in a contest. They are all petrol-powered. The plane that flies the furthest wins.

    At Hatfield Aerodrome we see an aeronautical garden party given by the London Airplane Club. Some unusual machines are demonstrated, including the Drone - a glider with a six horsepower engine, piloted by Herr Kronfeld. Shots of the aircraft in flight. People watch a fashion show of swimsuits and beachwear around the aerodrome outdoor swimming pool.

    A helicopter flies over the pool. Several men take part in a competition where they are given some odds and ends and told to trim a hat. They sit on the ground and struggle with their task, watched by a crowd of women. The lady judge walks past a line of men wearing their trimmed hats - some are very good, some are pretty bad! She picks the winner and puts it on.
