  • Short Summary

    French newsboys race through Paris carrying 33lbs of newspaper on their bicycles.

  • Description

    Full titles read: "The French Newsboys' Derby - Carrying 33lbs of newspaper, winner covered 10 1/2 mile course through Paris in 40 minutes."

    Paris, France.

    Great L/S shows a huge crowd of French newsboys starting off on a bicycle race along a Paris street; each competitor carries the specified amount of newspaper on the front of their bike; a large crowd of spectators swarms over the road as the boys ride off. Several good shots of the race as it moves through Paris; some spectators pass food to the boys as they go past. The riders are followed by numerous cars. M/S of the end of the race (I think...) - some riders get off their bikes and push; it looks pretty cold - snow on the ground.
