  • Description

    Unissued / unused material. Colour Material.

    Leigh on Sea, Essex.

    Various shots of men in shed cleaning and boiling cockles and possibly other shellfish. Shots as the cockles are lifted into and out of the boiling vats. There are so many cockles that they are literally shovelled into piles before being poured into baskets for cooking. Lots of steam. VS of the sorting machine that shakes the cooked cockles - good CU shots of shells being shaken. Good CU of spring on machine bouncing up and down. Broken shells being removed. The cockles go through a variety of sieves and sorting and washing procedures.
