    Default George Ibberson, Sheffield Works (1929) Knife making

    Here's a film I found on the Yorkshire Film archive of George Ibberson's Works in Sheffield. Not razors - but pocket knives and table knives being made. It dates from 1929 and is silent with title cards.
    It gives an idea of the conditions the men and women worked in. Razors would be made in similar conditions at the time.
