  • Short Summary

    Short segment - various buildings and towers - audience being asked to guess where they are?

  • Description

    No title. L/S of large buildings on a water's edge. Could be Liverpool or London (only 3 second shot). "Or the 'Tower' Blackpool? (a 500 footer)" Low angle shot of the Blackpool Tower.

    "No, here's the answer..." Low angle shot of another tower - it is the Post Office Wireless Station at Rugby. Another angle of the tower. Night shot of moon behind some clouds. "Then disenchantment - hurling fancy back to earth" - dusk shot of a car with its headlights on driving along a country road towards the camera. Incomplete item.

    This was presumably some kind of cinematic guessing game but is incomplete.

    Was an item in Pathe Pictorial issue number 497.

    Safety prints only - two exist, check for best quality.
