    Nice footage of St Mark's Square in Venice - people feed the pigeons.

  • Description

    St Mark's Square in Venice.

    Various scenic views featuring the beautiful buildings, pedestrians and pigeons. C/U of two women holding out their hands to the pigeons with grain in their hands. Two little toddlers sit on some steps surrounded by pigeons. They hold little paper cones which have pigeon food in them. C/U of the great bell of St Mark's.

    L/S of lots and lots of pigeons flying around the square. C/U of lots of pigeons fighting over food.

    Long panning shot of the square (almost 360 degrees I would say!) An intertitle informs us that this is how St Mark's looked in earlier times (probably the early 1900s). Various shots including a man feeding the pigeons.

    Was an item in Pathe PIctorial issue number 599.
