About this Item

Title

  • Loading sugar cane

Summary

  • "The short length of this films leaves much to be desired to give proper description. However, it is possible to see a large receiving car in a cane brake where several people are visible chopping cane and carrying it to the receiver. There is one person wearing white trousers, a blue coat, and a straw hat who comes from behind the camera position and starts up the incline. The film was photographed in Hawaii"--Early motion pictures.
