  • Description

    Stockholm, Sweden.

    Title: "SWEDEN HAS A 'RUM ROW' TOO! Holiday time vigilance of patrols results in capture of many smuggling craft - which are promptly auctioned and sold".

    Panning shot along a row of small motor boats moored in a harbour, there is a lot of activity as men get in and out of the vessels and standing in groups on the quayside. High angled M/S of three men standing in two of the boats - they appear to be searching the boats for contraband! M/S, taken from the quayside, of two boats being searched.

British Pathe captured many extraordinary events on film over its 80 year history but sometimes the cameras were switched on when tragedy struck.
