  • Short Summary

    Great footage of GE Rly's Egg and Poultry Demonstration Train at Stowmarket.

  • Description

    To Improve The National Food Supply - people go to see the GE Rly's Egg and Poultry Demonstration Train.

    Stowmarket, Suffolk

    Opens with great shot of people looking at display in the train. Nicely dressed children; a brother & sister; and father with arm around the girl; stand looking intently at large jars of eggs; as if it's an egg museum and a great learning experience.

    Shot of train; exterior; with a few men walking alongside the cars; pan back showing car with sign 'Egg & Poultry Demonstration'. Raised camera panning over heads of crowd gathered outside train; with a man standing in door of train making a speech expounding upon the virtues of eggs; one would suppose. (This could easily be a politician; or some kind of patent medicine salesman in the American west; too.) A sign on the train beside him reads 'Hatching Section'.

    Exhibitions; agriculture.

    G 397 A.
