    Titles read: 'PEEPS THROUGH THE WINDOW OF THE WORLD'.

    Various locations of events.

    In London we see a man called Mr Will Butler taking his model yacht for a ride on his tricycle. Several shots of the working parts of the steam-powered yacht. Mr Butler launches the yacht on a lake and we see it chugging along. The yacht tows a boat carrying six children and Mr Butler across the water.

    In Puchberg we see various shots of the oldest man in Austria celebrating his 103rd birthday. A crowd of people watch him being congratulated. He is wearing the medals he won in the Austro-Italian war of 1859. The man holds his baby great, great grandchild then poses with some of his 108 descendants.

    In California, United States of America, we see a new flivver plane built by Waldo Waterman coming in to land. It can carry two people and their baggage and apparently doesn't slip, spin or stall. The plane takes off and we see air to air shots of it in flight.
