Washing the Sweep

A washerwoman's work is never done - especially when there's a drunken chimney sweep at large...

Comedy 1898 1 mins Silent


"An amusing tussle between two laundresses and a sweep," explained the catalogue entry for this James Williamson comedy. A sweep wandering home brushes past the clean laundry of a couple of likely lasses who take their revenge by soaking him from their buckets. The comedy is enhanced by the Williamson family dog who gets stuck into all the mayhem.
