Astrakhan Fisheries (1908)Documentary, Short · 20 June 1908
This picture shows the fishermen setting sail for the fishing banks, and one would judge from the happy smiles that wreath their faces that they were starting out for a pleasure trip, and so no doubt it is to them, hardy fishermen that they are. The next view shows them casting their nets, and then we see them dragging and throwing the fish by the tons into the boats. We get a good view at close range of a fine big fellow about four feet long and gathered around him are the satisfied fishermen. The last scene is the return home, when the boats at full sail start for port with their wonderful cargo.
