  • Description

    Full Title reads: "Altena - A Flooded World! - Like ourselves and America, vast tracts are inundated in Germany."

    Altena, Germany.

    Car drives forwards until it comes to a stop in front of flooded field. A fence rises up from the water. C/U water rushing past fence. Rushing waters in flooded area, in the background are houses. A row of trees stand up out of the flood water.

    People hang out of doors and windows as the flood waters pass below. Woman climbs into small boat from her doorstep. People walk across bridge, the flooded river is only a few feet below.

    Men in uniform (soldiers or police?) line up with civilians to receive food. High angle shot of sausages being handed out. A young child wrapped up in a hat and scarf and held in a woman's arms holds a sausage. Behind them soup is served.

    There appears to have been a shorter, silent version of this item in Gazette 1887. This is currently missing.

    Sound track missing.
