As promised, this week we reach back to our last and final vintage reel from “Industry on Parade“, the weekly TV show sponsored by the NAM that ran form 1950-1960, on Saturday mornings. When we get a few bucks ahead, we’ll buy a couple of more episodes.
This week’s installment includes a tribute to the most popular mode of transportation in New York City — and the safest, they point out — the elevator. It’s a a nice piece on the Otis Elevator Company, well-know the world over.
The next segment is on innovation and eyeglass holders. There’s one on the “Yard Hand”, a yard-sized tractors and (after a short plug for reforestation and the lumber industry), a piece on the manufacture of molasses from sorghum.
Here’s a link to the Saturday Video, another installment of “Industry on Parade.” We’ll go back to modern-day stuff next week.
