  • The car seen here is a 1928 Cadillac Model 341A Town Sedan.

    The car was displayed at a Southend-on-sea amusement park for several years in the 1930s.

    The car has a long and fascinating history, more of which can be seen here.....

10 telling images selected from British Pathé's extensive WWI footage. 'The war to end all wars' was a war without parallel: over 70 million military personnel were involved and over 17 million people died.
