    Turkish Retreat (Fleet).

    Location of events unknown.

    Turkish fleet retreat. Poor quality but some good images. Tracking shot moving right; boats and ships moving to left. Then reverse: ships going past to rt. Small sailboat w triangular sails - fishing boat? in FG. Another sailboat seen across water; moving past in front of a long low building w/ arched windows all along it - hills in distance w/ spires; whole scene looks like it could be ancient, till a steamboat passes in FG.
