  • Description

    Title reads: "SHREWSBURY".

    Shrewsbury.

    A street in Shrewsbury under water, flooded Tudor type houses. A man carrying another man on his back. Medium shot of a man helping women and children to walk along planks at the side of the road. Women are taken shopping in row boats. Heads peering out of bedroom windows. Water swirling under a bridge. A woman walks down into a flooded back garden and takes washing from a line. Pan down from woman to close up shot of her feet on the soggy ground.
