A friend of mine spotted this gem in a longer film. I tried to get the code to start at the lacemakers part, but if you don't jump to that point it is about 9-10 minutes in the video.

    The jump worked! After the lacemakers there is also a short piece on some school children. This is an era when they still wore sabots.

    Love those head-dresses and hats! And the children are precious. Those are a lot of leaves and tallies, and they are smiling while doing it!
