  • Description

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

    Various locations of events.

    In Australia we see several shots of a goose or duck fighting with a tabby cat in a small boxing ring. They actually look like they are just play-fighting. Kookaburra birds watch the fight and a parrot in a cage looks on.

    Near Sandgate in Kent we see a woman called Miss Jackson in white dungarees cleaning the windows of a house. Then she looks in a compact mirror to apply her lipstick, of course.

    In Klosterneuburg on the River Danube in Austria, we see various shots of a 500 yard long steel cable being stretched across the river. It will be used to guide a ferry across the fast waters. Men stand in boats across the river to guide the cable into place.

    Also in Austria, in the Cetztaler Alps, we see men climbing over the the glaciers and treacherous crevices of the Wildspitze Mountain.
