    The Monte Carlo Rally seen here took place from 24-30 January 1949.

    "Hotchkiss (winning car)" - it's a Hotchkiss 686GS.

    "Bristol coming to a halt. driven by Dobry Trybal" should read Bristol 400 coming to a halt, driven by Frantisek Dobry and Zdenek Treybal.

    "Winners - Trvoux and Lesurque" should read Jean Trevoux and Marcel Lesurque.

    "drivers of the Hotchkiss receiving first prize, from the Prince Rainier or Prince Pierre" - although the commentator identifies the man as Prince Pierre, I agree with the cataloguer that it appears instead to be Prince Rainier.
