  • Description

    Full title reads: "PRIDE OF FORMER DAYS - Windjammer "Abraham Rydberg.""

    Location Unknown.

    Pan along the ship with people working on it. A man playing accordion and they sing while working. Name on side of the ship reading "Abraham Rydberg". Men climbing up the ropes to hoist the sails. Several nice shots of the great windjammer at sea - some with sails up.

    Man in Captain's uniform talking into camera (natural sound). He says that only about 20 windjammers are currently in use - mostly as cadets' training ships. Some are used to transport wheat from Australia to Europe. Captain hopes that he will be the first o bring the wheat to Europe.
