Making tennis balls at Dunlop 1940's
An animated tennis ball, stop motion which unravels. Raw rubber processed in factory. Cut into strips on a machine. Shaped into half shells. The moulding process - made round. Cloth covers are made. Applied by machine and by hand. Steam heated. Balls are then tested. A bouncing machine. An endurance test with an automated racket. Tests by people for compression, size and weight.
