If you are new to our industry, it might be time to learn more about chimney sweeping as an industry. The chimney sweeper trade began in Western Europe in the 1800’s, and solved an urgent need to remove soot from wood-fired flues. If the soot was not removed it would result in smoke spilling out of the fireplace. Our black and dirty job is highlighted best by the 1964 Disney Film Mary Poppins and its primary actors Dick Van Dyke and Julie Andrews. First Impressions of a Chimney Sweeper were very positive in this active and comedic film! Dick Van Dyke and Julie Andrews’ talent in acting was magnified and captured in this mid ’60’s color movie of an English chimney sweep and his powerful and lovely friend Mary Poppins who served as the nanny to the Banks family. Singing and dancing on roof with Burt and his fellow sweeps is a highlight of the tale as Burt reconciles an overworked father to his two children so that they can finally go fly a kite together as fathers and their children should. It is a classic in the comedy, fantasy and family genre of American films.
