Quitting Time Factory Whistle Circa 1950 (Vintage Film Industrial Footage). A whistle or call is a simple aerophone, an instrument which produces sound from a stream of forced air. It may be mouth-operated, or powered by air pressure, steam, or other means. Whistles vary in size from a small slide whistle or nose flute type to a large multi-piped church organ. Industrial whistles are used for signaling and timekeeping both on railroad and ships, and in factories. At noontime in industrial areas up into the 1950s whistles of every pitch could be heard, as each factory had a boiler and a whistle, if not full steam power.
