Exit of Clerical and Factory Workers (c.1901)

It's home time for men and women at an imposing but unidentified workplace - or two?

Non-Fiction 1900 2 mins Silent


These two shots make an odd contrasting pair. Found together on the same roll, with no accompanying information, each shows a very different workplace but a similarly grey, damp day. In the first, white collar workers (managers, clerks, secretaries) leave a classical office building. The second shows us a mill or factory and its own workers. But where? Are the two scenes even related at all?
