• Description

    Full titles read: "The Youngest Bathing Belle - Marjorie Best, a dashing, splashing, two-year-old."

    Location of events unknown - somewhere in United States of America?

    M/S of a little girl being lowered into an outdoor swimming pool by a man; she swims about the pool with water-wings on her back as an unseen crowd claps. A voice calls out, "Now on your back!"; Marjorie swims backwards, rather than on her back. She is lifted out of the pool to rapturous applause and she claps too.

    Intertitle reads: "Marjorie's "dive" is unusual - ".
    M/S of Marjorie edging gingerly along a diving board, then walking right off the end, landing in the pool as the crowd claps. She is lifted out again. M/S of Marjorie, wrapped in a towel on the poolside; she says something, but I cannot make it out! Seems to end with the word "Daddy" and sounds like an American accent.
