  • Description

    No titles.

    London.

    Several good street scenes in London. Crowds of people walk along Oxford Street and look in shop windows. Lots of traffic on the roads. General view of front exterior of Selfridges department store. People buy fruit and vegetables from market stalls in a street.

    Crowds wait in queues for buses and walk down steps to the Underground. Several quick shots of theatre billboards; star names featured include Chico Marx, Tommy Trinder, Leslie Henson, The Crazy Gang and Terence Rattigan's play 'The Winslow Boy'. Shot of crowds pans up to show city apartment building.

    Unidentified countryside location.

    Various scenic shots of the countryside: cloudscapes, fields, flowers, country pub and sign. A woman works in her garden, cutting cabbages. Another woman uses a pump to get water from a river. In a village we see a lady on a shopping trip looking at fresh fish and veg outside a store. Country cottages. A hand-written sign announces a dance in the village.
