Watching “Around Cape Horn”

In this meeting, we watched “Around Cape Horn”, a 1929 16mm film shot by Irving Johnson (1904-1991), depicting part of the barque Peking’s voyage around Cape Horn. Afterwards, discussed the film’s content, its historical importance and how sea voyages have or haven’t changed since the film was shot.
