  • Description

    Liverpool, Merseyside.

    'Women care for soldiers' children.' Large group of women and children in a park in Liverpool for a picnic and games of which we get to see skipping. Opens with great scene of the women skipping! first; about 6 women jumping all together; of course they screw up soon--one keep s on hopping and laughing. Other women and kids stand around watching. Next; as turners keep twirling; women 'run in'; jump once; and 'run out' (not so simple in the long skirts they are wearing); several of them in a line. Pan to right on other women holding babies; etc.; more matronly looking than the young jumpers. Next women and children sitting at tables in the park; pan across the group; trees in BG. Fun. Sports; recreation; and world war one; home front.
