If you can, this is one video that is better with the sound turned on.
Of course the vintage swimwear is a must-see, but the narrator of the video is just as exciting.
Here’s the synopsis of the fashion film from the British Pathe.
“The commentary is an original 1940s newsreel commentary and therefore has lines in it that comes across today as sexist, naff and cheesy!”
We love it! How fun and such a sign of the times.
“Very woof woof, very chic.”
That must be the best line of the entire commentary.
