Children; institutions; charity; nobility. Duchess of Marlborough opens new mothers and babies home at Balham. Opens with shot of duchess; along with old man and a few ladies; approaching camera; then stopping. Cu same; duchess in lace blouse; large hat. Cu women with children;the duchess is weighing a baby with hair all combed into one curl along the middle of its head; like a mohawk; behind the scale; a fat cheeked little girl held by woman. This is funny--the kid being weighed sits playing with a leaf; then looks up at camera with a frown; then rises in a sort of big dish as the duchess puts a weight on the other side.
