  • Short Summary

    The first coach 'sleeper' arrives in Liverpool after its first trip from London.

  • Description

    Full titles read: "London - Liverpool - First Road "Sleeper"... - latest innovation in Road v. Rail rivalry... makes first trip."

    Liverpool, Merseyside.

    M/S of a small double-decker coach driving along a road; as it passes we see the sign on the side reads 'Albatross Sleeping Car - Express Non Stop Night Service'. M/S of the bus parked in a street where several people walk past and look in the windows - not much privacy for those still asleep! M/S of some people standing at the door of the bus; presumably the first passengers (and the driver? There are a few women who could be stewardesses?). M/S of passengers coming off the bus, mostly men with briefcases.
