  • Short Summary

    Nice footage of a woman in a revolutionary shop where everything is delivered by machine.

  • Description

    Rotterdam, Holland.

    MS. Woman pushing basket on wheels about supermarket. MS. Woman looking in window of 'Full-Automatic' shop. She finds the article she wants, puts her money in machine and dials the number on the article she wants and it appears through a glass door near base of machine. VS. Full mechanism of the machine showing the man who maintains it and keeps it stocked.

    Note: great footage of what shopping might be like in the future (seen through the eyes of 1962...) - vending machines, self service shopping. The machinery itself now looks rather basic. A bottle of drink gets rolled around on a conveyor belt for example - hope it isn't fizzy!
