This week they visit Java, see a strange method of transport and bathing in the river.
"This week finds us in Java, where we film the world's queerest street Railway - they store high-pressure steam in a boiler - just like a giant Thermos flask." Various shots of this unusual mode of transport. It is like a miniature train engine. We see point of view shots from on board the train then shots of the carriages it pulls. Rather like tram carriages. A steam driven tram of sorts? Passengers jump on as it is travelling along.
Footage of a large number of people washing in a river. M/Ss of men and women washing clothes. Their technique is described as "primitive" by the narrator and he describes one of the women as "quite husky" whatever that means! "Sometimes the thrifty ones combine bathing with washing and soap up with their clothes on."
