This terrific short promises to reveal “this season’s toilettes for the seaside which water cannot spoil”, and goes on to show seven elegant woman, who emerge simultaneously from the two-storey changing rooms at Chiswick’s Edensor Road pool. Carrying parasols and wearing very stylish costumes – including a hat that can be worn while diving - they nibble on ice cream cones before splashing about in the small outdoor pool.
