  • Description

    Buenos Aires, Argentina.

    Anti-German demonstration and riot during World War One. High angled shot crowd of demonstrators in street. High angled shot march in progress, some of crowd carry flags and around placards. High angled shot people carrying huge piece of fabric parallel to the ground (seems to be banner but no words or symbols visible).

    Exterior of light coloured building, possibly German embassy? Some windows are broken, there is a guard standing at door. Another guard (possibly policeman) stands on pavement. Some of mob mill about on pavement near building. CU meta emblem with eagle on above door, broken window behind it. Pan on broken windows and debris on ground. Guard looking at the damage.

    American cataloguer's note: Argentina did not enter the war - the closest the war came to entering Argentina was the 1914 Battle of the Falkland Islands (British territory). In a short sea battle the British quickly overcame the German attackers. Perhaps this protest had something to do with that or possibly it was sparked by the sinking of neutral trade vessels etc.?
