    Views of Poverty and homelessness in 1930s Paris.

    French title reads: "Le Dejeuner Des Sans-Logis. Paris. Grace a la soupe populaire du XVIIIe arrondissement, les clochards sont invites a un repas chaud."

    Paris, France.

    A line of fairly dishevelled looking men outside a building. They are looked after by a policeman. Men and women gather around a table as soup and other hot food is handed out. Various shots of people eating soup and bread. Some of the people are wearing uniforms - they look more like costumes from a play.

    Superfluous intertitle.
    Intertitle reads: "Les Ilots Insalubres. Paris. Il y en a malheureusement encore beaucoup dans la capitale; celui-ci, situe dans le 18eme Arrondissement est en voie de disparition."

    Views of a damaged neighbourhood in Paris. People are living in homes amongst the ruins. Children play between the half demolished houses.
