British Pathé was a company who created newsreels and documentary films from 1896 to 1976, with very broad themes. Fashion trends, travel, science, culture… everything you can imagine. Their work is now digitised and you can watch everything online, via their website and YouTube channel. A real trip back in time.
My favorite videos are part of a series called “How It’s Made“. They are short videos of 2 or 3 minutes that show the process of producing various objects and foods. Some of my favorites:
Doll Factory (1963)
Liqueur Chocolates (1965)
Mixing Face Powder (1958)
Macaroni & Vermicelli (1957)
Incredible, isn’t it? Their channel is full of amazing videos ~ like these Beauty Hints from the 50’s. Let me know what you think of that salad mask. ;)
