Summary

This short film shows a ship moving into port slowly passing the camera, followed by shots of several men standing on boat deck dressed in hats and leather driving coats. A motorcar is lifted off the harbour and hoisted onto the deck of a ship. A group of men then crowd another man holding a sheet of paper, possibly awaiting further instructions. The film ends with a close up of several older men talking then turning to look at the camera (continues on TID: 6463).
