The advancements in drugs testing practices are the crux of the film, and the films intentions are to demonstrate the effectiveness of such modern procedures.
This is one of three films made of the building and opening of the new Lewis's Store in Leeds between 1930 and 1932. The building was opened to the public on the 17th September, 1932 by the Lord Mayor of Leeds, Alderman F.B. Simpson. The opening ceremony took place in the restaurant, where the chairman of the company, Harold L Cohen, presented a cheque for £500 for Leeds Charities to the Lord Mayor. Over 100,000 people visited the store on that first day. About half way through the film, after the opening speeches, it has been filmed at a slower speed, and so appears speeded up.
