• Short Summary

    A visit to Addis Ababa, capital of Abyssinia in Africa.

  • Description

    Titles read: "With Pathetone to ADDIS ABABA".

    Addis Ababa, Abyssinia in Africa.

    Various shots in Addis Ababa. Throngs of people crowd to listen to a street orator. A poster on one of the walls shows the Pathe cockerel logo; commentator says Pathe brings motion pictures of the western world to this city. A man runs down a street with a lamb or sheep on his shoulders.

    Several shots in the rainy season; people walking along muddy streets with umbrellas; washing their feet in puddles. A steam train leaves for the coast from the barren desert area; children run alongside it.
