  • Description

    High shot of a beach - could be Scarborough as it looks a little bit like the Spa.

    Women walk along the promenade in their "Sunday Best". Three women pose by deck chairs. Intertitle reads: "Mere man is Camera-shy - - - possibly he was afraid of obscuring the charms of the striking striped creation just beyond". This is followed by a shot of men spotting the camera and moving out of the way.

    Intertitle reads: "Little Eve loves her flounces, but the "Brownies" revel in the comfort of simple "woollies". Shot of a young girl in a flouncy frock. We then see two younger children in simpler clothes - see still (not "Brownies" as we know them).

    Intertitle reads: "Adam is more in his element at the tea-table though Eve's frocks are no less appreciated". A group take tea in their deck chairs. One man looks through binoculars in the direction of the camera. C/U of woman sitting in a deck chair with an elaborate feathered hat and smart white dress. She eats something. C/U of a younger woman in a white cloche hat.

    Nice 1920s fashions.
