Teeth of Steel - Excavators at Work

Monochrome Still from 'Teeth of Steel' - Taken from 'Films of Britain 1947-50'
'Britain’s giant excavators with their teeth of steel are cutting new inland waterways, draining fenland so that more food can be grown, carving out railways, docks and harbours, hewing iron-ore for factories and shipyards, digging clay for bricks.
These machines, perfected by British engineers, give their powerful aid to Britain’s reconstruction.' [1]
