    Chiswick, London.

    Intertitle: "TROUVILLE-ON-THAMES. Brilliant holiday weather attracts merry parties of bathers to the open air baths".

    L/S of an outside swimming pool, men and women in long bathing suits stand by the edge, one by one they dive into the water. Panning shot across the pool showing lots of young people splashing about enjoying themselves. M/S of a crowded platform with several diving boards - young men dive off. M/S of young men and women splashing and fighting in the water - they look like they are having great fun, there's a lot of flirting! Good C/U of two young men and their girlfriends sitting drinking cups of tea at the edge of the pool - one of the men puts a cigarette in his girlfriends mouth which makes her cough.
