  • Description

    Titles read: "SHOT!"

    Melbourne, Australia.

    General views of the lead shot factory of W Coop. From the top of the high tower we look out over Melbourne and see the spires of St Patrick's Cathedral and the Public Library. Various shots at this family run business show the process of lead shot manufacture, including the liquid lead being poured down the shot tower to make the round pellets. Several shots show men and boys taking part in a clay pigeon shooting contest in a field.
