Film Clip: construction of Centennial Exhibition

Still shots and description

opening title of film workers scaffolding

The film starts with a title card with the words 'Centennial Exhibition 1940'. The next frame shows a card with the words 'Construction' written on an angle in a decorative font. The opening scenes are of some builders working. One man is using a pick axe to loosen up the ground, another is sawing wood on a saw bench. The scene changes to a building site where we see the skeleton of a fairly plain looking rectangular building taking shape. Then the camera focuses on a more curvaceous creamy-yellow coloured two-storeyed International style structure just adjacent to the central Exhibition tower. Builders are working from scaffolding and on the rooftops. The hills of Miramar can be seen in the background. The colours are remarkably clear though perhaps a bit stronger than in real life
