1959 Asbestos Video

This 1959 video is titled “Asbestos – A Matter of Time”. It describes the geology and production of asbestos and touts its many uses. From our modern perspective, we probably interpret the title as meaning it’s only a matter of time before you die from it!

This video is actually entertaining and well narrated. There are some classic lines in here (e.g. “Untouched by time’s dark captains rust, rot and decay…”). It’s a great video to watch if you find yourself eating lunch at your desk.

Here is the video:
