We are in London, the capital and largest city of the United Kingdom.
The film opens with the sighn of the Science Museum, an important museum on Exhibition Road in London's South Kensington district. As the shot gets wider, we see the whole building as well as the traffic on the streets with the cars of that era
The view changes with shots from museum’s interior. The filmmaker is in the Industrial Revolution sector with the Textiles Machinery and other objects -from carding engines and looms to printing blocks and fabric specimens- tell the story of Britain's role in textile manufacturing from the Industrial Revolution onwards as it focuses on one of them.
Afterwards, we have shots from the Flight Gallery. We see Avro Lancaster, a British Second World War Four-Engined Heavy Bomber/Reconnaissance Aircraft (1942) and then various models of airplanes.
The film closes with Vickers Vimy/Rolls-Royce Biplane, flown by Sir John William Alcock (1892-1919) and Sir Arthur Whitten Brown (1886-1948) made the first non-stop flight across the Atlantic on 14th-15th June 1919.
