  • Short Summary

    Lovely ladies run a marathon in Paris.

  • Description

    Item title reads: " The First Midinettes Marathon. 5 miles through heart of the grey city from Montparnasse to Montmartre."

    Paris, France

    M/S girls with drums line up ready for the race. M/S of the girls running towards camera, wearing coats and hats, and from a moving vehicle, men and boys are seen to run with the girls, and cyclists also keep up the pace. Some of the cyclists wave their caps. The winner wears a strange flowery hat and smiles as she is congratulated with kisses.

    Note: More fun in Paris with a race for the Midinettes.
