    Nice footage of Dutch girls wearing traditional costume and at their daily chores.

  • Description

    Netherlands: woman doing domestic chores; girls in traditional Dutch clothing.

    Title (now lost) may have read: "Dutch Delights/ Over in Zeeland where Miss Holland smiles her way through the domestic- - ".

    LS Dutch woman in long dress and little white cap is bent over by doorstep; scrubbing wooden shoes. MS she looks up w/ big smile. Fade into MS 5 pair clogs outside door; woman enters; leaves clogs there as she goes into house.

    Note: from style of filming and flash-frame intertitles this looks to me like an Eve's Film Review item - JH 2002.
