Summary:
Footage taken by Theodore Richards, a minister who lived in Hawai'i, of an around-the-world cruise. It would seem that the cruise began in England and ended in Hawai'i. The route is confusing based on the assembly of the film rolls as received but the countries include: England, Greece, Italy, Palestine, Egypt, Johannesburg, Argentina, Brazil, Mauritius, Martinique, India, Ceylon, Sumatra, Bali, Burma, Philippines, China, Taiwan, Japan and Hawai'i. Film footage in general captures city streets, port and countryside scenes; tourist sites; tourists interacting with local peoples (photographing and filming, purchasing goods); inside views of various activities particularly at the missions; scenic views and shipboard activities.
