Description

This black and white edited film opens with three men standing in a field urinating (?). One man notices that they are being filmed from across the river and makes a two fingered inappropriate gesture in return.

In the next section a younger lady and two younger men are sitting in a log cabin. The young men seem to be tickling or inappropriately touching the young lady whom is trying to get away (?).

In the next section a young man and two young men are rowing a boat on a river. In the pair one drops an oar, whilst the other tries to steer the boat back to go and get it. The two men mess about and the boat almost capsizes.

(20 sec of black midway through the film)

A man slowly lowers a street lantern into the river wearing in a dressing gown standing in a boat (?) . The last shot shows a young man holding a folding 120 Film camera (?), filming the cameraman (?); both are standing next to a river and lodge.
