Compilation of news reels and promotional films

The Go Getter Part 4: A Western Electric Picture A silent film about a farm in which electricity does the water pumping and so makes life easier for those on the farm from running faucets to early forms of the washing machine. It also churns the milk into butter. And so, electricity can make life better when added with good old fashioned brains, grit and determination. This film, shot entirely on a Pennsylvania farm, is eliminating drudgery just as we've seen it.
