Pouring Glass: the Movie
Here is some of the film footage shot from the pouring of the first 200-inch disc on March 25, 1934. Film was shot on the pouring of the second disc (December 2, 1934) but I haven't seen any of that yet.
If anyone knows where I can see footage from the second casting please let me know.
