Advert 1905 14 mins Silent


From workshop to showroom to shopfront, here’s a thorough initiation into the many departments of an early 20th century local business. Think of it as an Edwardian infomercial - an early, small-town demonstration of the close historical links between documentary and promotional filmmaking. Particular emphasis is placed on White and Sons’ piano-making business, for which it was renowned in its day.
