Fascinating. Did you notice how many people were employed? This whole process can now be done with a book binding photocopier by the person writing the story. In Colour!
Also, the narrator mentioned "this man" or "the woman" rather than the neutral job title. Quite different to today.
Thanks for posting the video.

Yeah, it was a different world back than.

And it was fascinating.

I wonder what people will be doing in 50 years. Whatever it is I'm sure they'll look back on a binding photocopier as quaint.
