Film winder by the Denver-based Goldberg Brothers manufacturing company, which started their famous film industry product line in 1913.
The film winder was called “an ingenious little apparatus”, and a “great labor saver.” Before the film winder, film would have to be wound by hand, even though film had to be handled carefully and kept clean and free from dust. Since it was small and compact, a film winder could be placed on any table or shelf that may be near the projecting machine. By turning the crank of the winder slowly, a 100-foot film can be properly wound in less than ten seconds. Place this antique in a TV room, near your collection of movies.
