  • Description

    Item title reads: "Come a' ballooning. Our cameraman accompanies competitor in Le Blanc Race to greet the picture-and give you the sensation."

    Paris, France

    Hot air ballooning in Paris with Pathe looks like fun! Four or five large balloons can be seen in a park. One rises up and away and we can see the basket, with sand dropping from it. We then have a view from the basket as the sand is released. The crowd below look up and wave. The cameraman films another balloon, and also one above. We see sand released from another which has a cameraman on board filming. We see a brief air to ground shot of Paris, and another balloon passing by below.

    Note: Great example of how daring the cameramen were to tackle anything - so that the viewers could share the experience.
