  • The location for this footage is an unnamed BMC factory.

    "Lorry cabs on assembly line" - I believe these are cabs for the Austin FFK lorry.

    Some of the footage seen here features in clip 1237.02, entitled "Design for Work', and is therefore likely to be offcuts for that piece. This fact also enables the clip's date range to be reduced to 1958.
