• Short Summary

    A new bridge is opened in Poland by Marshall Smigly-Rydz.

  • Description

    Poland.

    Various shots of a new bridge being opened at an unknown location in Poland. Commentator says it's "a place with a name like someone trying to swallow his false teeth shouting Vladivostock" (Vladivostock is in Russia).

    Marshal Smigly-Rydz, described as Poland's semi-dictator, cuts a ribbon to open the bridge. He is followed across by a bishop (?) and other clergymen and a huge crowd of people. Point of view shot from a car as we travel across the bridge.

    Note: paperwork erroneously suggests that this story takes place in Vladivostock, probably due to commentator's remark - see above.
