    Battersea, London.

    The marvellous work which goes into candle making is demonstrated at the Belmont Works.

    C/U shot of a large pot of greenish liquid swirling round. A scoop is dipped in and the liquid is poured into another container. M/S of the work area, where a man is seen walking along the rows with different coloured candles in moulds. He stops and pours the liquid into one block. Another man presses a lever which pushes up the candles from the mould. he fits a metal block over the candles. C/U shot of the machine as the candles are pushed up.

    M/S of the factory and the man working with banks of yellow and red candles. C/U shot of the wicks being cut with a knife. A man takes a large frame of thin red candles, and lowers them into a mould. He then pulls them out, and lifts them away. Another man works with some thin pale blue candle, cutting them free from the frame and picking them up in a bundle. C/U shot of the base of a very large candle . C/U of feet going up a step ladder. M/S of the candle as the wax is poured over, panning to the bottom as the liquid wax drips off the base.

    M/S of a man taking green and white Chinese mandarin candles from their moulds and hanging them on a rack, before polishing them. M/S of a young woman dipping two red candles into a pot of hot wax and twirling them. She pulls them out to show the spiral pattern and puts them to cool in a tray of water with others. We finish off with a floral display which has thin candles. One is lit with a taper. M/S of some finished and decorated candles
