The French liner ship 'Pasteur' is launched at St Nazaire.
St Nazaire, France.
Various shots of men doing last minute work on the new French liner ship 'Pasteur' - named after Louis Pasteur. Madame Pasteur-Radeaux (sp?), a descendent of Pasteur, smashes a bottle against the side of the ship to launch it and the huge vessel moves slowly down the slope and into the water. Several small boats gather around her on the water as huge crowds look on.
