    Launching of a Ship.

    Location of events unknown - somewhere in Britain?

    Front diagonal shot of ship with striped bow; with part of crowd on pier. Side view pan on ship moving by slowly to right; past the spectators and out into the water. Looking up at bow. Left side view; which is the first one to really show how huge the ship is; a few of crew on deck; and 2 small rowing boats also in water. Another shot just like opening; then pan right; past ship's bow to view of bridge (?).

    People on the shore, standing on uneven ground. Short shot of ship's hull moving through water. More of ship - pan on length of ship. Camera moves around. Pan over general area - buildings - warehouses; etc. Train wagons, some construction in progress; cranes; etc. But trees and fields in distance.

    Last shot seems unrelated: a group of working-class boys; teenagers; young men - quite a few of them - walking toward camera; urban landscape; brick building in background.
