About this Item

Title
Aunt Sallie's wonderful bustle
Summary
"A sudden gust of wind sweeps Auntie's bonnet from her head, and she, in attempting to regain it, becomes overbalanced and falls over the stone-wall, landing on her bustle. Upon striking she immediately rebounds, disappearing from view. Alighting, she again rebounds and then lands safely beside her badly frightened companion. This picture is highly amusing and bound to create a great deal of laughter"--Edison films catalog.
