1923 Swedish Cooper Video

Here is a link to a very enjoyable film of two Swedish Coopers in 1923.

Looks like they're using mainly homemade tools. The different knives and shaves are particularly interesting, as is the "clog vise."

Kinda neat to think that the older man was probably born around 1855.

As always, if anyone finds links to vintage films like this, please let me know.  I just love them.
