    The first 57" of this film - show the manufacturing process of the raw plastic material - are from what was originally called The British Xylonite Company factory at Brantham on the Stour Estuary in Suffolk, first established in 1887. 51" - 57" shows Xylonite which was also known as Celluloid (especially in USA). The raw material was then sent to other factories for moulding into objects.
    The company later changed hands - in 1966 to British Industrial Plastics, a subsidiary of Turner and Newall Ltd., who were in turn purchased in 1977 by Storey Brothers of Lancaster, formerly a major commercial rival, which then became Wardle Storeys.
