What a treasure! You wouldn't think there would be a lot of films like that from the 1930s.Lene
What a great find! I watched with interest how they used a wood dowel to pull the willow tight when tying off the joins - leverage made easier.... might work other ways with the willow.
It is amazing. I had to go look again, after Jo's comment about the leverage-tying dowel. When they were done with the frame work it was so precise. Sandy
