    American liner brings hundreds of Welsh Americans to Cardiff for the National Eisteddfod.

  • Description

    Titles and first section of story missing, that showed Cunard Liner Scythia bringing hundreds of Welsh-Americans to Cardiff for the National Eisteddfod.

    Cardiff, Wales.

    Intertitle reads: "U.S.L. "George Washington" also brought big party."

    Various shots of the huge liner ship, 'George Washington', approaching Cardiff and coming in to dock. M/S of the Welsh Americans walking down the gangplank from the ship. Various shots of hoards of people disembarking from an upper deck of the ship.

    Note: this is lovely footage of an American liner and passengers disembarking. Transferred from tinted nitrate print - it looks gorgeous!
