  • Description

    Item title reads: " "Piccadilly is up!" "Army of Occupation" is hard at work on the trenches of famous thoroughfare."

    London

    M/S of workmen digging trenches in Piccadilly, watched by onlookers, as trams and cars roll by around them. Shots of workers working in deep trenches with large piles of earth all around them. Some pipes lie nearby. Some men wield picks and shovels while Londoners go about their business in the background. Sign says 'Beware of Obstructions'.
    Three men are hard at work while one does nothing in the foreground.

    Note: Good example of manual work, apart from one who has a rest while watching the other. Who said he was being lazy?
