The Kid Should See This

Candle Making (1963)

See how one million candles a day were made in a busy factory, Price’s Patent Candle Company in Battersea, South London, in the year 1963. British Pathé captured the wide variety being made, from candles that look like fruit, to flowers, to funerary candles, to candles for ‘fun spots’… both ancient and ultra-modern. Wicks spin and dip, candles are hand-painted, and 1,200 birthday candles a minute are manufactured automatically. It’s all set to a jazzy soundtrack.

Next: How to carve colorful decorative candles, DIY Candle Chemistry, and building a traditional Swedish snölykta. Plus: More factory videos and more videos from British Pathé.
