    Good film depicting process of making church bells.

  • Description

    Location Unclear / Unknown. 1947?

    Various shots, some good close up shots of various stages of bell making and decorating. Good shots of the bells emerging out of mould. Shots of the bell making are juxtaposed to shots of the people in church praying and priest reading sermon. Great low angle shot of a man working inside large bell. More shots of the men working on bells. Close up shot of the writing on bell with word Canada on. Unclear whether the bell is made in Canada or is going to Canadian church. Several shots of the men checking the sound. Several shots of the finished bells being transported and fitted to a village church tower. Several shots of the bells swinging - no sound unfortunately.

    Note: date found in the old record - 01/04/1947.
