  • Description

    "Heligoland...the once great fortress, now dismantled and back to its unimportant state of years before the war."

    L/S of Heligoland. Looks pretty desolate. Panning shot of what looks like ruined buildings and a railway track stretching off into the distance. L/S of the ruins. A man walks along the railway track into the distance. "Here and there, fresh concrete walls and supports have had to be made to prevent the sea eating away the rock entirely..." L/S of rockface with concrete supports. Panning shots showing the same. L/S of rocks and walkway between them. "Once a teeming hive of armed men... now, deserted."

    Was an item in Pathe Pictorial issue number 553.

    Safety print only.
