• Short Summary

    Item showing Austria's equivalent of Eton College - Theresianum.

  • Description

    Titles read: "Austria's 'ETON'".

    Several exterior shots of Eton College in Windsor, Berkshire.

    In Austria we see various shots of the equivalent school, called Theresianum, founded 150 years before by the Empress Maria Theresia of Austria after the death of the Emperor Charles VI in 1740. Boys walk about the grounds, sit working in classrooms, play table tennis and attend lectures.

    Boys in white practice fencing postures. Several quick shots of boys playing tennis and throwing javelins and the discus; a boy takes the pole vault, others throw a football around; boys run into school. Brief shots of boys eating in a dining hall.
