Mabel’s Married Life  June 20th 1914

Keystone 

Mabel Normand plays his wife

Earlier in the film there is a guy that is wearing a similar sweater and cap harrassing his wife Mabel, Charlie wimps out - so his wife finds this sports dummy wearing something similar to teach him to fight, Charlie comes home really drunk, (at the bar he encountered the guy again this time talking about his wife, wimps out again) and thinks this is the same guy and starts to beat up the dummy.

Mabel finally lets him in on the joke.  They were great together.

Iris and Janet, Bury Knowle, Headington, Oxford, 1914, Ethelreda Laing
Ethelreda Laing’s autochrome of her daughters is an example of early colour photography. The autochrome process used a random mosaic of coloured potato starch grains on a glass plate covered with a photographic emulsion which, when exposed to light and developed, produced a full-colour positive transparency. The process (patented by the Lumière brothers in 1903) continued to be the most popular colour process until the early 1930s.
