Shipping | 1930 | Silent | B/W
Amateur home movie.
The Arandora Star (Blue Star Line) under tow by two unidentified tugs, passing close by a pier. The vessel is in the original colours as in 1928 and filmed pre-1936 before the mainmast was removed. She is immaculate condition and there are no signs of passengers lining the rails. The ship eventually falls into line behind a four funnelled liner some distance away (possibly the Aquitania).
The Blue Star Line Ship is filmed either at Southampton or on the Clyde after a refit. There is an interesting few seconds ehen a tall man in a trench coat turns to face the camera, removes his fedora, and waived it in salute. The man is alone and appears to be of self confident importance.
