  • Description

    Full title reads: "Off the Thames. 'The Last of the Windjammers'. Old sailing days recalled soon to be but a memory, as 'Archibald Russell' leaves 'to sail the seven seas' again!"

    River Thames.

    Boys haul rope on deck of old sailing ship. Shots of the sail rising up the mast. Various shots of people climbing about in the rigging. Various shots of the sails on the old style sailing ship.

    Shot through rigging to show modern looking steam ship sailing past.

    Shots from boat passing round the 'Archibald Russell'. Shots of the great sailing vessel in full sail. Shots from rear as the ship sails off - the flag of St George is hoisted as she leaves.
