  • Description

    Full title reads: "LONDON".

    London.

    Various nice shots of Trafalgar square at a sunny summer day. Several people watching men drilling the road with noiseless pneumatic drill - almost noiseless. Several shots of the men working drilling. Cut to a large part of Trafalgar Square turned into a building site, mechanical diggers, drills, men working etc. A man on the bench nodding off into sleep. Cut to dugout street and the men working. Suddenly, he jerks his shoulders, jumps off the bench and leaves. Cut back to the men drilling.
