    Duplicate in yellow nitrate print of story about a running track and a baseball field on the deck of the American aircraft carrier 'Lexington'.

  • Description

    Duplicate story, transferred from yellow nitrate print - see separate record for black and white version.

    Full titles read: "Sports Ground at Sea - Huge deck of 'plane carrier "Lexington"' permits of 100 yds. race and a baseball field!"

    San Diego, California, United States of America.

    M/S of three men running in a 100 yards (?) race along the deck of the aircraft carrier 'Lexington'; sailors stand either side of the track, cheering them on. Various shots of the baseball field on the deck; a game is in progress and sailors stand watching (I wonder who dives into the sea to get the ball if it goes off the field?).
