    Cuts (rushes, out takes) for Colour Pictorial CP 610. The original story is on *PM0377*

    The shots are similar to those used in the edited story MARKET PLACES AROUND THE WORLD but also include the following:

    01:29:08 - 01:31:10
    Beersheba, Israel - a woman drops a large celery stick from her basket, and a man weighs a large white chicken, alive. People buy doughnuts.

    Saudi Arabia - shots of people with sheep, a man looks at a goat's teeth. Good shots of the faces of locals - young and old. People sit in the open square selling carrots and other goods spread on the ground.

    01:31:10 - 01:35:59
    Sriagar, Kashmir - there are shots of people in traditional dress, doing spinning by hand, some women have earrings and interesting head-dresses. There are shots of their clothes made of Llama wool and of faces. The sequences include street scenes with women carrying babies on their backs, or with huge baskets tied to their backs. There are also shots of horse drawn carriages and bicycles. Outside the town, farmers on the hillside tend their sheep. There are beautiful panning shots of the plains and mountains with the sheep, intercut with shots of the farmers wearing traditional hats.

    01:35:59 - 01:40:44
    Petticoat Lane, London - Sid Strong, the King of China, is seen tossing a set of china up as he does his selling pitch, and hammering the edge of a plate hard on a wooden table to show how strong it is.
