  • Short Summary

    Fund-raising for new lifeboat following the loss of the previous one in gales.

  • Description

    Wreck of Newquay lifeboat. Cornwall.

    Recreation on the beach at Newquay in Cornwall. Shot of a calliope; with advertisements hung up on it; being cranked by a hand coming from a body off screen. Several young men and women gather around it. Looks like a fair or some festive occasion. One girl; leaning against the side of the calliope and sort of bouncing to the music; can't keep from looking at the camera; she holds the arm of a young man to her right - having lots of fun.
