  • Description

    Titles read: "CINETOPICALITIES IN BRIEF".

    Various locations of events.

    In Stockholm, Sweden, we see various shots of people practising archery in a field.

    Several shots of the harbour in Stockholm and the different kinds of ships there. At night we see the lights around the harbour and buildings and on trams and cars, courtesy of "the latest high speed negative". In Staden, the ancient centre of the city, is the floodlit Royal Palace and King's Garden.

    In Czechoslovakia, we see a dog and a horse wearing gas masks to protect against gas attacks - quite a disturbing sight! The dog pants heavily in his mask.

    Various shots of a huge metal press at the Witkowitz Iron Works (Czechoslovakia?) being lowered onto some red hot metal. A watch is pressed into a flat disc by the enormous press.
