  • Description

    Full title reads: "Herne Hill. Strong - but no so silent - Men! Borough Market Porters hold annual sports .... their test of strength and agility."

    Herne Hill, London.

    Market porters compete in their test of skill and strength. The men pick up wicker baskets and make piles. They then attempt to balance them on their heads. Some piles fall over and several of the men have a good laugh.

    Shots of the porters racing around the Herne Hill track with the baskets on the head.

    Shots of men trying to build more piles of baskets.

    More shots of men going around the track with baskets on their head. We finally see the man winning the race.
