Workers Brooks and Doxey, West Gorton Works, Manchester 1900

1 mins United Kingdom

A star-struck adult who should know better tries to attract the camera's attention, but to no avail: this film belongs to the lively children and teenagers, workers or otherwise. Mitchell and Kenyon would return to Brooks and Doxey Ltd, a firm that produced machinery for the textile industry, the following year for an even better 'factory gate' production.
