Scenic views of Marseilles - architecture, the transporter ferry, etc.
Various shots of the port of Marseilles in France. Shots from on board a ship and from a high angle. "This City of a Million Souls has spent millions of pounds on the harbour, of which they are so proud." High angle shot of the city with the cathedral in the background. Panning shot of the city. "The famous Palais Longchamps - an artistic gem - "
Various shots of the architecture and statues of the palace. Shots of the transporter ferry - "the most conspicuous in the world." The old quay is shown from a very high angle. Camera tilts down and pans across. More shots of what I presume is the transporter ferry. Men stand on deck as it moves across the water. Cars and pedestrians leave the ferry. Various people board a ship by its gangplank (seen from on board the ship). Men in Indian (?) military dress ascend the gangplank. Shot from quayside of ship being boarded.
