• Short Summary

    Waiters in Cologne show of their balance and poise by racing around the streets with trays of drinks.

  • Description

    Full title reads: "Germany. Waiters ... in a hurry! Tall ones - short ones - thin ones - fat ones - compete for Cologne's Hotel, Restaurant & Cafe Championships."

    Cologne, Germany.

    Competitors in the waiters' race collect trays.

    C/U waiter holding his tray - not sure what he has on it. C/U of whatever is on the tray - it looks like a piece of meat. Many of the waiters wear sashes advertising their workplaces.

    Crowds of people look on.

    Waiters balancing trays of drinks walk very quickly along a road - they are racing each other.
