Description: Surveyor at work using theodolite [unidentified location]

Shotlist: Shots of a man using a theodolite viewer on a tripod presumably used to calculate building measurements or foundations. Close up of the man using the theodolite. The men, and another man with a hammer, appear to be in a wasteland field / building site with what looks like copper pipes and buckets poking out of the ground. A factory with two tall flumes are shown behind them, tenements in background (possibly Glasgow?). Man with the hammer is shown adjusting a short wooden pole in the ground, presumably to measure out foundations for a building (1.06)
