  • Short Summary

    The SS Augsberg is seen being towed to safety after collisions with an Italian Steamer and Dover Pier in the heat haze.

  • Description

    Full titles read: "Holiday makers see amazing triple escape - S.S. "Augsberg" in "heat wave" fog, collides with Italian steamer at sea... then with Pier... then runs on rocks and is saved finally by being towed off and beached."

    Dover, Kent.

    M/S of the lifeboat of the SS Augsberg, tilted at an angle on the damaged liner. General view panning across the coast at Dover showing the tilted ship in the background and the pier in the foreground.

    Several shots of the liner tilted at an alarming angle in the water with the white cliffs in the background; a tug is beside her and her bow is badly damaged. M/S from a tug that is towing the ship. Great L/S of the ship from the beach at Dover; a family sit on the shingle watching. More shots of the ship being towed towards the docks.
