1967 Video - Snuff Month in Oxford

The history of snuff-taking is interesting, and its fun when you stumble across some old film of snuff-takers.  This particular piece is from 1967 and was shot at Oxford, where the Society of Snuff Grinders, Blenders, and Purveyors sponsored a month of snuff sniffing sessions for experienced snuff-takers and newcomers as well.

I love the 1960's sound and feel of this video, and you get to see a couple of cool snuff boxes and plenty of snuff pinching.  This video is belongs to British Pathé, a producer of newsreels, cinemagazines, and documentaries from 1910 until 1970 in the United Kingdom.
