Various locations of events.
In Italy we see various shots of adults and children picking grapes in a vineyard. In a warehouse women pack the grapes into boxes to be sent off to markets. The grapes are loaded onto refrigerator cases that are put on train wagons.
Shots of scientists at a research laboratory. M/S of two great 30s shoes (snakeskin?) - one a court shoe, the other a high-heeled oxford. We see a machine that was invented for measuring feet. A man adjusts the dials inside. Two lamps light up on the machine when the pressure is correct. The man checks the dial readings against a fitting chart. Nice C/U of the court shoe being taken out of a shoe box. (Location of events unknown - probably Britain.)
In the United States of America (?) we see various shots of a cameraman getting into a diving tank with his camera on board a ship called 'Salvo'. The tank is lowered below the water and we see brief underwater shots of the sunken steamship Marigo - barnacles on steel plates. The crew of the ship haul a safe up from Marigo. The safe is said to contain jewels worth a fortune and was underwater for 20 years. The men on board shake hands.
