• Short Summary

    Women from Liverpool Physical Training School show off their athletic prowess.

  • Description

    Women's sports. Part of issue - CHILDREN FIRST AND LAST.

    Liverpool Physical Training School, Merseyside.

    Various shots of group of women doing synchronised swimming and co-ordinated high diving in an outdoor pool.

    Various shots of women in gym shorts tumbling and leap frogging over a massive rubber ball. A matronly looking instructor supervises. The girls lie on their backs in a circle and bounce the ball up in the air with their feet.

    Various shots of women practising their cricket techniques - we see them batting and bowling. Unusual to see women of this era playing a 'man's" sport!
