    Monkeys around an Indian train, boys do somersaults and Yorkshiremen throw quoits.

  • Description

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

    Various locations of events.

    In Jaipur in India we see several shots of a group of monkeys on top of and beside a train at a station. The passengers lean out of the windows and give the monkeys titbits.

    In the United States of America we see young boys of the Dallas Athletic Club (Texas?) doing an exhibition of tumbling in a field. Their instructor throws one of the boys around into different balances. Good shots of boys doing somersaults.

    In a village near Whitby in North Yorkshire we see men playing quoits with rings or iron or steel. The rings are thrown onto a bed of clay. A small group of men and boys watch the game. One of the men does a perfect throw and then poses with his winner's trophy and a smaller cup. Pan across the group of players, with two of the men holding trophies.
