Summer Arrives - When It's Nearly Autumn
Tremendous footage from the open air pool at Chiswick where young men and women are having a wonderful time messing about in the pool.
From the collection of:
Lovely film of a late summer day by the “inland seaside” of the open air pool at Chiswick. There’s total mayhem as dozens of men and women are shown clambering up the diving board and hurling themselves from the top with reckless abandon. Later we see a tug of war, splashing, ducking, diving, leaping, bombing and posing as men hold women on their shoulders for the cameras. Great fun.
