Teams of Sudbury "Nippies" have a women's tug of war. The girls have to have their shoes inspected - presumably for studs - so they crouch down on the ground and a man comes along and looks at their shoe bottoms.
Good shot of the team in the black and white shirts straining on the rope. C/U of one of the girls with a very resolute look on her face. Shot of other teams pulling on the rope. L/S of two teams pulling against each other.
Note: the Lyons Corner House waitresses were nicknamed the "Nippies".
Safety print only. Original decomposed and destroyed.
Was probably an item in Eve's Film Review issue number 319.
