Matchbox Cars (1965)

Here we get a look into the Matchbox car factory in Hackney, London, as they built toy cars in 1965. They were designed larger, and then shrunk to make the molds.

Parts were die-cast from molten metal and assembled by hand. Today's plastic Matchbox cars are probably are cast by robots, if they aren't being 3D printed already. Also neat to discover: British Pathe has some vintage films that are in color. -via Laughing Squid
