If you ever wanted to know what it was like to spend a day with Thomas Edison, here’s your chance.
This footage from the 1920s follows the 74-year-old legendary inventor as he clocks into his own factory for a day’s work. Yes, he was still working at 74 years of age!
He later gives consultations to others hoping to open factories of their own.
The film also documents the machinery needed to create Edison’s light bulbs and the production process. It’s a very educational peek into the life of America’s greatest inventor.
