  • Short Summary

    Construction footage - men balance on very high girders.

  • Description

    Germany?

    Story about construction workers who wander precariously up and down narrow beams and planks. Camera at ground lever tilts up to the top of a large building. M/S of two men working very high up sitting astride an iron girder on a pulley system. Various shots of men standing on precarious girders, working in vertiginous circumstances, balancing on narrow iron walkways etc. The men have a drink - although the intertitle states that they are drinking tea, it looks more like beer! Short segment - probably incomplete.

    Was an item in Pathe Pictorial issue number 663.
