Steve in Bohemia

1937 , Ipswich (Suffolk)

The occupants of artists' studio flats set out for the artists' ball. Asked to borrow a costume for a friend, Steve mugs a man for his costume in an alleyway and gallops home, but the clothing is set alight by a gas lamp. The arrival of a cracker costume saves the day, and his companion sets off for the ball. Meanwhile two more artists get into a pantomime horse costume and inflate the head with gas. Steve follows the creature around until diverted by a walking cracker. A fight ensues as all three collide and ascend into the sky together as the costume is inflated by gas from a street light. The city's gas holder deflates accordingly. The monstrous ballon descends through the glass roof of the artists' ballroom and a cheerful Steve emerges from a Chinese lantern.
