Picturesque Dordogne. Perigueux and its surroundings. The St. Front Cathedral is reflected in the transparent waters of the Isle. Old Renaissance style hotels can be found on the embankment… as well as curious neighborhoods. In the surrounding area, the village of Bourdeille… whose castle towers over the river. The valley of the drome is bordered by beautiful cliffs. We also encounter a dolmen, La-Pierre-Levee (The Raised Rock). Art industry. The crystals of Bohemia. Glass blowing studio. Constructing a vase. While blowing the ball of glass, the artisan comes to place it in a mold where in continuing to be blown it will take the shape of a vase. The engraving is done with the help of a toothed wheel rotating at high speed. The work requires incredible precision and is trusted to true artists. The painting studio. The trimming. The completed vase. A few Bohemian crystals. Colonial Products. The banana from the Antilles. The banana known as the "figue" in the Antilles is one of the principle productions of this colony. The fruit of the banana tree is part of a bunch that keeps its flower or " popotte" up until full maturity. These bunches ripen at 10 to 12 months and are harvested by felling the tree because the banana tree will not grow fruit a second time. The numerous rejects assure the continuation of the species. The harvested bunches are stored in a shelter where they remain for 24 hrs before being transported. Visions of Egypt. The Sphinx under repair. After 40 centuries of existence, the restoration of this impressive monument needed to be undertaken. Built at the foot of the Memphis pyramid, it represents a colossal seated lion with the head of a king. The scaffolding. A group of indigenous girls clear the monument of sand which, chased by the wind, invades it. Tirelessly the young Bedouins, baskets full of sand on their heads, continue their monotonous labor. Recreation. Soap bubbles. Nothing is more fascinating for kids than soap in the form of bubbles. A fantasy for young smokers. Miss Lily lends a hand.
