We are given a tour of a castle built by Mr Ignatz Oechner
Location is Cambria Castle, Williamsville, New York, United States of America.
Introductory intertitle reads: "To few of us is given the chance of making our dreams come true, but Mr Ignatz Oechner of New York, who dreamed of a lovely castle, has built this with his own hands"
C/U of Mr Ignatz who stands in front of a pile of gravel and speaks to camera - no integral sound on this version. Panning shot of the grand castle he has built which stands in large grounds featuring a lake and a fountain. It is a kind of "folly" with beautiful gardens and unusual features such as large glass globes on pedestals - C/U of one of the globes which resembles a fortune teller's crystal ball.
"Fourteen years ago, Mr Oechner found this island and started his great task of showing what a man can do with grit and determination - and a beautiful home he has made of it." Moving shot of the castle - presumably taken from a boat on the lake. Boat passes by some ducks then under an archway.
It is all rather wonderful!
Note: alternative spelling of the owner's name is Ignatz Oechsner.
