Blue smoke footage

The original pressing/cutting of Blue Smoke. Fascinating clip, hat tip to Amplifier, clip shot by the National Film Unit.

"For the first time, gramaphone records for sale to the public are being made entirely in New Zealand..."

...they created the master stamper to press the records - it was able to press 1000 shellac discs for sale, then they replaced the stamper. Blue Smoke sold over 30,00 copies...
