    Ankle deep in sugar. Boston, Massachusetts in the United States of America.

    Fire at sugar factory in Boston; Massachusetts; USA. Pathe's title: Ankle Deep in Sugar -- that gives an idea of the scene. LS looking toward the destruction -- w/ collapsed buildings; etc. and white stuff everywhere which looks like snow on the ground but is sugar; 6 people stand in a group. below.

    Pan rt. looking over disaster site. Then ground level shot; pan left over the damaged buildings; the rubble; white sugar is blowing over ground. 2 guys -one in fire hat --walk past to left. Shot of group of 10 or 12 workers trying to walk toward camera; slipping in the wet sugar; sometimes sinking in past their ankles;they all wear high black fishing boots; most wear knit caps.

    NB - SEE ALSO 1912.32 ON THIS TAPE, THEY SEEM TO BE IDENTICAL.
