    Flooded railway track in Vietnam.

  • Description

    Tonkin, Indochina (Vietnam).

    Title: "Miles of Floods sweep countryside, wrecking railway and causing enormous damage".

    Point of view shot from the front of a train driving along a railway, fields on either side are flooded, people walk along the small strip of dry land beside the track carrying bundles. Point of view shot from the front of the train, the track is almost completely submerged.

    M/S of a crowd of people standing on the banks of a flooded river, an odd looking Western man in dark glasses and a pointy beard stands in the foreground. L/S of a crowd of people walking up and down the train track, they look like they are loading something onto a stationary train.
