1927 Film

This short video is a compilation of excerpts from a 25 minute cine film of the late 1920s. Clearly created at the same time as the 1927 Album that is a source of many of the photos in the Westinghouse books, this shows the increasing movement towards higher technologies within the factory – and yet the remaining importance of heavy engineering, with the foundry very much at the centre of operations.
