Good shots of processes involved in making choc ices and novelty ice cream items.
High angle shot of a tank with water bubbling inside it. Various shots of machinery used for making ice cream. Milk seen passing through various machines. Hundreds of choc ices are seen being made. The blocks of ice cream pass through a "miniature waterfall of molten chocolate" (mmm!). Good shots of the choc ices going through all the different process. Narrator speaks of the "robot-like machines working with icy indifference".
The "human" side of the operation is shown. Two women sit together at a bench working on special ice cream gateaux. C/Us of women icing cakes and making fancy ice cream "bombes" and weird and wonderful things like a "Madame Pompadour" doll which has a china body and ice cream skirt. Bizarre.
Note: print only - no negs. Alternative spelling for search purposes - ice-cream. The factory is J. Lyons & Co. although this is not mentioned in the commentary.
