Conveyor belts

Kinky Boots offers many pleasures, musical, theatrical, and industrial ones among them. The vignettes of shoe-making using mostly 19th-century equipment and lots of hand-finishing could have gone on and on, so far as I'm concerned. It's amazing how many people, if asked, remember Industry on Parade. I'd love to know more about the musical accompaniment for these. When we hear certain music, sometimes we remark that it would go well with IOP. Nobody ever forgets the portentious narration, either. What a vanished epoch! An exclamation point is used here because each segment-title has one. We saw many of these on the F. television, which had a tiny, tiny CRT and then all the tubes and wiring exposed behind it. I suppose that A. had made it himself.
