  • Narrowing down this clip's current date range, the policeman's list of 19 car registration plates that we see 02:57 bears no post-1963 numbers. Nor are any post-1963 reg plates seen on the streets during the clip.

    Furthermore, at 05:18, there's a glimpse of "Chanel Story" by Barbara Griggs. I've found extracts from "Chanel Story", (presumably a book, or maybe a newspaper column) in newspapers from March 1962.

    I think, then, that this footage can be safely dated as originating from between 1961-63.
