Drama serial, "Samsui women" : movie scene [1]

This is a photograph which shows two actresses who are dressed as samsui women in the drama serial titled "Samsui Women" (红头巾). One of them seems to be lifting a ceramic jar to drink while the other looks on. From their surroundings, it is evident that they are at a construction site. They are dressed in the characteristic samsui red headgear and blue samfoo (sometimes spelt samfu), a tunic-and-trouser suit. Title devised by Library staff. Date of creation estimated.
