Scope and content
Item is an amateur film which captures what appears to be the so-called "man without a country" George Dibbern and his boat, La Rapunga, with its "citizen of the world" flag. The film also captures Inner Harbour (Victoria, B.C.) and the Empress Hotel; various sailboats; a man (again perhaps George Dibbern) hula dancing and climbing the rigging on his boat; Margaret and a young boy sailing on a catboat; and various boats.
Moderate edge damage, moderate perforation damage, mirroring, mild soiling, severe warping, mild scratches, some frame burns.
