Bubble raft model

A short film demonstrating the creation of a bubble raft and highlighting that on manipulation, dislocations in the structure can be formed and repaired, similar to the close-packing seen in crystal structures.

These three silent film clips are likely to be excerpts from a longer film on bubble rafts, possibly made in the 1940s -1950s by William Lawrence Bragg.
