  • Description

    Faversham, Kent.

    Title: "A Launching Novelty at James Pollock's famous Yard, where all ships are launching sideways".

    C/U of a woman standing on a platform next to a ship, she swings a champagne bottle on a rope at the hull of a ship. Panning shot follows the ship as it slides,starboard side first down the slipway and into the sea. L/S of the ship on the water - looks more like a large tug boat or fishing vessel than an ocean liner.

    Cuts / Out takes start at 01:49:34. More shots of the woman climbing up some steps onto the platform beside the boat. Some shots of men boarding the recently launched ship from a dinghy moored beside it. Otherwise, cuts are similar to edited story.
