  • Short Summary

    Colour footage of a market town in Pakistan in the early 1970s.

  • Description

    Pakistan, exact location unknown.

    VS hustle and bustle in Pakistani Market Town. Buffalo and camel carts. Cars, trains and buses. Children playing in dusty streets. Patistani men, women and children coming and going. Women carry cloth wrapped bundles on their heads. Men ride in carts pulled by oxen, donkeys and horses. One of the animals pulling a very heavy load looks rather the worse for wear. These are hard working animals.

    Good general street scenes.

    Various shots of a herd of buffalo (?) being moved through a street towards a stretch of water. A young boy rounds them up using a piece of rope then throws rocks in the water for fun. An elderly man stops and looks at the camera. The buffalo are seen wading into the river. Men ride bicycles and mopeds past the camera.

    Camel pulls a cart which has an enormous amount of sacks tied to the back and several people weighing it down. C/U of the camel as he draws the cart along. More shots of the water buffalo.
