Spotted these gems on the British Pathe website

They start with spoken English then progress onto newspaper production.

The date on these is 1931.

Listen carefully to the man who's marking up the copy towards the end of Reel 1 - does he really say "Bondoni Type?"

Nice footage, going back to an era when Britain could produce something bigger than a sandwich!
