    Aimee Pfanner crosses the English Channel on "hydro cycle".

  • Description

    On the English Channel.

    Full titles read: "THE CHANNEL SEASON HAS COMMENCED ! - 22 year old Mlle Aimee Pfanner "hydro cycles" across from Calais to Dover in 9 1/2 hours."

    L/S's of Aimee Pfanner on the weird and wacky invention - the "hydro cycle". The contraption looks like a bicycle on skis, there are several shots of her pedalling frantically away in her bid to cross the channel. Good L/S of Pfanner approaching Dover Harbour. C/U of Pfanner posing for camera.
