It is the summer of 1920 and Matilda is holidaying at the beach for two weeks.
She is putting on a show for a good looking male photographer and is lapping up being the centre of attention. "Thanks very much for taking my picture," she says with a funny look in her eyes.
Matilda's father owns a big fishing company in Scandinavia where they live. Matilda is single and looking for a man to share her life with. Born in Scandinavia and on holiday with her parents and two sisters.
Her mother is the lady in the background with the umbrella, she is keeping an eye on things. Matilda wants to marry and is not interested in a career.
It is a very hot day, seagulls fly above, the waves are lapping on the shore, children are playing, dogs are happily barking - it's such a wonderful feeling.
There is a bar in the background. George Eastman, the photographer, thinks he will stroll over there after to refresh. He invites Matilda to join him. They exchange addresses and phone numbers so they can keep in contact.
