Fascinating, tailors were busy in 1927

Great piece of video. I am spoilt in that I own a pair of Heinisch shears that came from a London based tailor who traded between 1920 up to just before ww2. He was a shirt maker for the well to do. His daughter had kept them as a family heirloom for over 60 years.

Yes, the way the old footage has been restored and digitalised is remarkable. Thanks for sharing!
