Description: Interior shots of Glenhar factory (decorated to celebrate the Coronation) with shots of the cutting and sewing of ladies' fashions. Models give a fashion show of men's and women's wear produced by the factory.

The industrial estate was fairly new and the firm who made the "Glenhar" products had moved from the city centre to this new factory a couple of years earlier. Film illustrates male and female dress immediately after the war, and a fashion parade of the merchandise prior to the arrival of the continental buyers.
