  • Description

    Titles read: 'THE OTHER MAN'S JOB - NO. 2 - The Steeplejack'

    Manchester.

    Shots of one of Manchester's highest church steeples that is about to be overhauled by famous steeplejack Mr Donaldson. There is scaffolding around the very top of the tower.

    We see three men climbing up the outside of the tower on a long ladder as we hear that 40 feet are to be taken off the top because the foundations of the church have sunk slightly from the weight. The brave Pathe cameraman climbs up with his equipment.

    Shots of the men at work at the top of the tower and views of the streets and rooftops below.
