  • Description

    This is Pinewood Stock Cans material.


    Various shots of the busy streets in a city in Egypt - cars, busses, pedestrians etc. Good long shot of a dome of large Mosque, shot through an arch, shadows of the people moving past in foreground. More shots of the very busy narrow streets with crowds of Arabs, some in traditional dress and some in European. Various shots of the posters with people and Arabic writing - look like film advertisements. More shots of the busy streets. Various good close up shots of the Arabic men talking into camera. A ship in a harbour. Arabs working in a desert - they are digging a canal. More shots of the busy streets. Various shots of the farmers working on land. Various shots of the young girls seated at long table having meal - presumably school dinner. Good shots of the Egyptian soldiers doing rifle drill. More good shots of the streets, crowds, markets, traffic, etc. Various shots of Prime Minister of Egypt Colonel Abdel Nasser talking into camera being interviewed - no sound.

    Cataloguer's note - judging by Nasser's appearance this footage is filmed around the time of Suez crisis - although unclear whether before, during or after. However, no military presence in this item.
