  • Description

    Paris buildings & boulevards; 1910.

    Square in top right corner grows to fill screen with shot of Paris Opera House; much vehicle and pedestrian traffic in street. Shot from a corner panning on another busy street; with both horse-drawn carriages and cars passing; people going in & out of shops.

    Scene in park; maybe the Bois de Boulogne: people strolling & riding horses; a lady gets out of a car. MS man & lady stand by coach; big dog comes out after them. MS as stylish young men walk past at racetrack; 2 women stand talking behind them.

    More creative stencils used on the out & in to next shot; of people at pavement cafe outside large building with tall arched windows. Many pedestrians on pavement. Wider shots of long white building from previous shot.

    People on beach; those in foreground fully dressed; children playing with shovels; woman holding baby; a mound of sand with flags of several countries (USA in front) planted in it; people in background swimming. Another creative shot of men driving early cars past; one has French flags mounted on it.
