A glimpse of the palm- shaded avenues, crowded with natives and lumbering carts, is the opening picture. The crowd is interspersed with the white helmets of Europeans, and the whole scene is one of bustling activity. There then fol- lowes a series of picturesque and richly- coloured views, which give to the film its title. Dvers are to he ;;en standing in run. ning water and immersing silken goods in deep dyes. Toy-makprs carving little wooden playthings by hand, a knife grinder, and a woman selling pancakes, are also found at their separate callings, and another picture furnishes us with the method of weighing live pigs.
