  • Description

    London.

    C/U of silver knives, forks and spoons on a red velvet tray. We then see several shots of cutlery being made by hand in a small factory; the seven workers are the only members of the London Hand-Forged Spoon and Fork Makers Society. Men are seen hammering pieces of silver on anvils, pressing the desired style using a mould and filing the cutlery into shape.

    Note: there are notes on file which say the factory was C J Vander Ltd. Brief cuts exist - see separate record.

Verbal warfare at its best. Here are some of history's greatest retorts and snarling insults. These people certainly didn't mince their words!

British Pathe captured many extraordinary events on film over its 80 year history but sometimes the cameras were switched on when tragedy struck.
