    Factory Fire - USA.

    Baltimore, Maryland, United States of America.

    Winter; must be very cold; as water from the hoses is frozen into icicles hanging off things. Back view of firemen on truck; pan up to stream of water from hose. CU; pan left past some firemen and civilians - fire-fighters drinking coffee or something else hot; from steaming cups old man talking to fire-fighter.

    Titles mention that factory was on Paca Street in Baltimore; 7 injured; 80 girls rescued. GV fire; smoke billowing from building; other buildings in FG still ok - firemen stand on one of the near roofs. Another view of smoke pouring from building. US fire-fighter on ladder up against building. Roof where they have set up most of the equipment - great shot; really dramatic; hoses all over; ladders sticking up into sky; and jets of water also arch up; pan up to nothing but smoke. Some good footage of firemen at work; especially from this era.

    Exciting. Danger.

Animals are often the forgotten army of World War I. They displayed unwavering courage even when exposed to extreme conditions. British Pathé pay tribute to these forgotten warriors.

British Pathe captured many extraordinary events on film over its 80 year history but sometimes the cameras were switched on when tragedy struck.

Verbal warfare at its best. Here are some of history's greatest retorts and snarling insults. These people certainly didn't mince their words!
