  • Description

    No title. Peking?

    L/S of Chinese men working at a well gathering water. One man lifts water from a well and another spoons water into barrels. Closer shot of the man working the winch which lifts the bucket of water. He tips it into a channel where it flows down into a larger water butt. M/S of the man who ladles out the water. He smiles as he works. L/S of man pulling a rickshaw. A man in the background ladles water from a bucket onto the ground. Rickshaws pass close by the camera. Short item - incomplete.

    Paper records state an item both in Eve's Film Review issue 430 and Pathe Pictorial issue 430. I would guess Pathe Pictorial.

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.
