Show Review from the Birmingham Owl:

The Dahomey Amazons perform war dances and manoeuvres accompanied by chanting and native music. Their turn illustrates written accounts of West African festivals. 'Piccaninnies are swung on the backs of their mothers. Some of the men demonstrated wonderful feats of swordsmanship. One of Miss Lottie Lennox's songs is about a sad reservist; the other about a coster Cinderella.
