• Short Summary

    Black Widow spider, home made traction engine and two-storey pub in London.

  • Description

    Titles read: 'PEEPS THROUGH THE WINDOW OF THE WORLD'.

    Various locations of events.

    In the United States of America we see various shots of a Black Widow Spider crawling along a branch. Commentator says that "their sting means death, and they have become the leading public enemies for immediate extermination".

    We then see various shots of Mr Joseph Hackett with a model steam traction engine he built from scrap. (Location of events unknown.)

    In London we see a view of the famous Shot Tower as we look along Commercial Road towards an arch of Waterloo Bridge. Rather dark shots show a pub called The Feathers on two storeys. The entrance to the top storey is up a flight of steps. Commentator says one storey is in Southwark and the other in Lambeth.
