    Two stories - Japanese way of carrying a baby and the Oldest Apple Tree in the North West of U.S.A.

  • Description

    No title. "Minute Curiosities. This is how the Japanese baby's sedan chairs are constructed. -- Tokio [sic], Japan." M/S of two Japanese women standing in a garden. One holds a baby and helps the younger one to tie the baby to her back. The younger girl smiles broadly at the camera. She turns to show how the fabric ties support the baby. L/S of a large tree. Camera pans down. Three people look up at the tree and a man points up at the branches. There is a sign beneath the tree which reads: "The Oldest Apple Tree in the North West - Grown from seed brought from London, England planted in 1826 by the Hudson Bay Company." Intertitle follows: "Today, the apple industry represents millions of dollars -- all from one little seed!" M/S of an apple orchard. C/U of apple blossom. Low angle of bough of apples. L/S of apple orchard in bloom.

    Note: This is an extract from a "Walter Futter's Curiosities" film, presumably bought in by Pathe for reuse.
