    United States of America (USA).

    Red Cross sends aid to victims of Halifax. New York mattress company truck being loaded. Big stacks of mattresses are piled on top of a cab! Another truck from Boston backs up in foreground, it is piled high with pillows & blankets. Shot of worker moving mattresses strapped to a hand truck, other workers around, many more mattresses in background piled up. Disaster relief, charity donations

    American cataloguer's note: Most likely referring to Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada where there was an explosion of ammunition in 1916 which caused great damage in the surrounding area.
