Netball 1954

A girls netball match in play in an outdoor ground, followed by shots of the two teams stood in row, and another with the Mayor of Hackney stood between them. There follows some film of a flooded sports ground, with bare footed people with trouser rolled up walking through immense puddles. Some men use large brushes in order to try and physically push the water away, while other stand and look on.
