  • Description

    Titles read: "CINETOPICALITIES IN BRIEF".

    Various locations of events.

    In New Hampshire, United States of America, we see skiers travelling to the top of Mount Claremore (? sounds like Clanmore or Cranmore) on the Ski-mobile - little pneumatic-tyred cars that travel along a rail from the base of the mountain to different points on the ski-slopes.

    In South Africa (Cape Town?) we see men stacking huge piles of timber on a dockside after it has been unloaded from ships. The African men walk up an enormous pile of timber as if it was a staircase, to put more timber at the top.

    At Durowitz (?) in Syria, young coal miners go through a kind of initiation ceremony to join the Guild of Miners. The men have to jump over a leather apron and walk out under an archway of raised arms.
