  • Short Summary

    An industrial barge is contrasted with much smaller canal barges.

    "Most of us have seen this kind of barge - " M/S of two canal barges emerging from a tunnel. "But, over on the great Lakes where they deal with millions of tons of wheat, a super-barge has evolved, made by the mile." High angle shot of large river barge.

    Point of view shot from on board the barge as it passes under a bridge. M/S of the barge as it passes the camera. The words "Material Service" are painted on the side. The barge slowly passes the camera. Short item - possibly incomplete.
