  • Description

    Turks On Board Ship.

    Location of events unknown.

    Opens with shot C/U behind man in uniform which looks like British army; as he walks on deck; poles; rigging in BG. He walks to where 3 men in Turkish hats (fez with crescent shape on it) stand; next to a big cylinder on its side. He opens door on it; stuffs a bag in with their help - they seem to be pushing stuff in. They close door; turn clamp-type things. Seems like they were stuffing laundry into a giant primitive washing machine, these guys all walk toward cam; turning right; 3 men in civilian overcoats; left standing on deck.

    Some Turkish men in uniforms pose on deck; against rail; with 2 small children. Ship is moving - passing other crafts in BG. Civilians - couple; then man alone - pass in FG.

    Turkey; Ottoman Empire.
