  • Abstract

    Part 2 of 2. [00:00:00 - 00:03:33]. This recording was made by Iona Opie when she recorded her granddaughter Elizabeth Opie reciting children's playground games and songs. It is unclear when this recording was made. Elizabeth performs two clapping games for Iona. These are 'See, See, My Baby' [00:00:00 - 00:01:59] and 'I Went to a Chinese Restaurant' [00:02:00 - 00:03:01]. The recording ends with Iona herself singing 'Miss Mary Mack' [00:03:02 - 00:03:33].
