  • Short Summary

    Thermal activity areas in California - jets of steam emerge from rocks.

  • Description

    "Smoking earth...hot jets of steam. Earth Power Valley in California." Various shots of thermal activity areas. Steam coming out of rocks in a large valley. "Plenty of real central heating and no fires to light!" Group of men stand on the edge of the valley looking down. Short segment - incomplete.

    Was an item in Pathe Pictorial issue number 519.

    Safety print only.

    Note: it seems that this neg was badly decomposed when safety print was made so image quality is quite poor. Print is also very dark.
