Storyline

No visit to Africa is complete without a trip up this famous river. In this interesting picture we find a party of tourists enraptured by the scenic marvels of the Nile and the many odd sights along the shores. Natives are cutting and loading sugar cane in primitive fashion and the old ferry, which has seen service for hundreds of years, attracts the attention of the travelers. Here are a number of natives, earning three piastres a day by bringing soft coal from the boats and carrying the huge bags on their heads. Arab workmen are removing stone from the ruins of the Temple of Karnak, while others are constructing new masonry. The Arab basket-makers are at work and the palm leaves and stems are formed into many striking designs by the deft fingers. The native boys are carrying dirt and the sand and gravel mill presents an unusual sight. Written by Moving Picture World synopsis
