The video captures daily life in the early 20th century, coming and going in a Beijing market, lots of hustle and bustle, craft store on the street, caravan of camels crossing. In Mongolia: shot from the back of a track train, buildings, crowd near buildings, horses and carts passing, mounted soldiers. Quiet river, fisherman’s wharf, native buildings on shore, boats on water, city streets, pedestrians, pigeons. Images of a religious procession, men near a masonry chimney. Grille, fire, men throwing things on it. Shots of strolling acrobats performing in the street, crowd watching.
