    Storage system designed by London businessman and latest fashions in accessories.

  • Description

    Titles read: "CINETOPICALITIES IN BRIEF".

    Various locations of events.

    Several shots of a new system of office storage invented by a London businessman called Tom Foulkes who got the idea by playing with matchboxes. M/S of Mr Foulkes looking at his plan for movable storage cabinets. Rows of cabinets are set closely together on rails so that they can be pushed apart easily to retrieve their contents. They look very similar to storage and vault shelves in use today.

    Several shots of beautiful women modelling the latest fashions in jewellery, jewelled cigarette cases and fur-trimmed hats. High glamour 1940 style!
