  • Short Summary

    Various shots of a regatta - possibly Henley. Unedited material.

  • Description

    Unedited material - leader states it is 1920s material but it looks earlier to me - probably late 1910s.

    C/U of woman with a parasol sitting in a boat on the river - probably the Thames, could be Henley Regatta. As the boat moves along we see people on the banks of the river and other joy seekers in various boats. Various shots of people in punts and rowing boats. The boat carrying the woman seen earlier is pushed off from the bank. Camera follows boats as they move along.
    High angle shot of a large number of smartly dressed folk in punts moving off fro the bank. Girls in white stand in their punts to watch the boats go by. Panning shot of people in punts. C/Us of pretty girl seen earlier. She looks very excited (overacting!) Moving shot from a punt of crowds of spectators. Various shots of people in punts. C/U of woman in punt with parasol. M/S of woman putting down her parasol and getting into the boat. High angle shot of the river, crowds of people stand and watch.
