  • Description

    Titles read: "CINETOPICALITIES IN BRIEF".

    Various locations of events.

    Various shots of a mechanical haberdashery shop, staffed and patronised by mechanical dolls or automatons. One dolly measures out some fabric, another stands on a ladder to fetch something for a customer. A lady customer doll stands at the counter. Brief shot of the inside workings of the shop. (Location of events unknown.)

    On the snowy streets of Riddarholmen (?), Sweden we see numerous wild marsh ducks and mallards being fed by people. The sea birds were driven inland by the hard winter.

    In Cape Town, South Africa, we see several shots of bulldogs being paraded by their owners at a dog show. Good C/Us of the dogs.
