Advertised as part of the "Pacific Coast Life Saving Service Series" (Edison films catalog): These subjects are illustrative of the work performed by the Life Saving Corps of the United States Government, and show the methods in vogue at one of the most important stations on either side of our Continent. The exact routine pursued in actual practice is clearly illustrated. We are particularly indebted to Major T. J. Blakeney, Superintendent of the U.S. Life Saving Service, 12th District, San Francisco, Cal., and Captain W. C. Coulson, of the U.S. Revenue Cutter, San Francisco, Cal., for their kind co-operation. We are thus enabled to bring before the public generally absolutely true and accurate pictures of one of our most worthy as well as interesting institutions, the crews of which are constantly risking their own lives for the preservation of others.
