  • Short Summary

    Young engineers work on their inventions - model cars, railplane, tractor, motorcycle etc.

  • Description

    Introductory intertitle reads: "Boys will be boys - and engineers...anywhere in the world. Perhaps there are some future Fords or Austins here - "

    Panning shots of young engineers (boys of between about 7 and 14 years old) working on their inventions. C/U of a boy working on a model of a car - it looks as though it is made from Meccano or a similar construction material. The boy shows how the door and the boot of the model car open and close.

    C/U of a model railplane - it looks like the George Bennie railplane! L/S of the model being propelled along a line suspended in the air. C/U of a model of a tower. It looks a bit like the Eiffel Tower - or even Blackpool Tower. American flags are seen behind it so perhaps it is an American tower. C/U of a model motorcycle, then shot of a boy being pulled along by a tiny model tractor.
