  • Short Summary

    Lots of fun sliding down a wooden slide into a swimming pool.

  • Description

    A new sport whereby swimmers sit on a toboggan and slide down a slope splashing into water below.

    L/S and C/Us of the fun. Two girls slide down together. When they hit the water they skim along the top for quite a long way before falling off. View from the top of the wooden slide as the two girls have another go. People stand at the bottom of the slide looking up. Seems to be at a lido or open air swimming pool.

    "So that you may enjoy the thrill without the ducking, our Cameraman bravely took the slide." Birds eye view as the cameraman travels down the slope and into the water. Low angle shot of the girls on a toboggan at the top of the slide. The camera falls away from them as the cameraman heads off down the slide backwards!

    Was item in Pathe Pictorial issue 451.
