Mexican Fishing Scene



Mexican Fishing Scene

Taken on the Las Vigas Canal, City of Mexico. This is a humorous subject, and shows two Mexican Muchachos, clad in their scant costumes, consisting of a pair of trunks, engaged in their favorite occupation of fishing for eels. A flat-bottomed vegetable boat, suddenly appearing from the background, collides with the boys' craft, and they are unceremoniously precipitated into the water. The boys scramble hastily into their boat to resume their fishing. The background is formed by a luxuriant field of sugar-cane. A sharp, clear film with fine water effects and full of action.
