    Title reads: "Britain's First Double Decker Dream Town".

    Hastings, Sussex.

    Love the film of my grandad, he is the one with glasses, the only thing his name was Mr Brian Adnams
    and not Mr F Adams, unless it was one of the other gentlemen.

    But thank you for the film he died when I was 10 years old

    Many thanks Terry
