View of the Suez Canal and Port Said and environs

What appears to be a fortress, with flag flying over it and a very tall steel tower standing in front of substantial buildings near the water's edge. Egyptian fishing boats docked at breakwater in Port-Said, with Statue of Ferdinand de Lesseps in the background. Camera pans along the waterway, photographing a steamship and more fishing sail boats in the vicinity of the Lesseps monument. Scene shifts to the land, where local people are going about their routine workaday activities. It appears to be late in the day, with lengthened shadows and most shops closed. View changes to looking down from a fortress where visitors are going up stairs. Then a view from high up on a cross bridge where visitors have a view of rock outcroppings and excavations and a cave related to Suez canal construction. Another scene depicts several historic-looking buildings and a deep basin so large that Egyptian youths are playing football (soccer) in it. (Note: the film is reversed.)
