  • Description

    Full title reads: "Cherbourg. Short circuit, negligence, or malevolence? First pictures taken on board 'L'Atlantique' give a graphic idea of the damage and destruction and the horror of 'On fire at sea'."

    Cherbourg, France.

    Several shots of the burnt out wreck of the French liner ship L'Atlantique in the dock at Cherbourg.

    Shots of inspectors going on board the ship.

    More shots of the fire damaged ship (shots show the ship's name). The ship is still so hot that water splashed on to it turns to steam. Smoke still rises from places. (Sound runs out).

    Shots on ship showing devastation of deck areas.
