Shipping | 1900 | Silent | B/W
Launch of Japanese 'Katori' pre-dreadnought battleship at Barrow-in-Furness, Lancashire. A crowd of finely dressed ladies and gentlemen, largely in top hats at the shipyard, the bottle is smashed and the ship slides down the slide. As it goes, a decorative bulb off the bow explodes into streamer and confetti.
Possibly Robert Paul rather than Hepworth
