I don't recognize the actors, but it looks like it is from the late 1910s or early 1920s. Definitely a comedy.

We'd need more.

Was this a reel? Perhaps you could post some more pictures of the whole thing?

Be careful of avoiding open fire with the film, it might be flammable.

Thank you. :) A better man than myself must identify this, though. :(

I could be wrong, but it seems to me that the concept of a 'tea garden', in the sense of an outdoor cafe or dining area, is a concept that was exclusive to British countries. The intertitles may also give some clue to its origins. For example, I'm not sure what a 'boasting tadpole' is, but it has the ring of slang to it. If it were to be of Australian origin, it could be a very exciting find.

Thanks, I'll email the National Film and Sound Archive in Australia.
I'll add some more photos soon to see if it helps identify it.
