    Various shots of Chinese men at work - lifting water from a well, pulling a rickshaw etc.

  • Description

    No title. Peking?

    L/S of Chinese men working at a well gathering water. One man lifts water from a well and another spoons water into barrels. Closer shot of the man working the winch which lifts the bucket of water. He tips it into a channel where it flows down into a larger water butt. M/S of the man who ladles out the water. He smiles as he works. L/S of man pulling a rickshaw. A man in the background ladles water from a bucket onto the ground. Rickshaws pass close by the camera. Short item - incomplete.

    Paper records state an item both in Eve's Film Review issue 430 and Pathe Pictorial issue 430. I would guess Pathe Pictorial.
