  • Description

    Note: The location of the events in this film are unknown.

    Full titles read: "THE BOAT AFLOAT - A watery Novelty."

    Intertitle reads: "For those who like to float here's the latest little boat !"

    M/S and L/S of woman wading into a lake wearing what can only be described as a small boat around her neck ! (Her head sticks through the top and a propeller at the back turns around when she turns two handles on the sides). Several shots of the woman moving slowly through the water past some very surprised looking swans ! It really is a very bizarre looking invention.
