  • Description

    Italy.

    Brief aerial shot of a ship about to be launched from a shipyard. Various shots of the crowds and the new ship 'Stockholm' which is destined for the Europe - America route. Men work to free the ship from her shackles prior to the launching. M/S of a sign relating to the ship in Swedish. Brief shot of clergymen, presumably blessing the ship.
