Footage of motor cars powered by gas bags and cylinders.
Gas Bag Motor Car.
Location of events unknown - London?
Car powered by gas bag on top. Truck parked in street; words on side 'Maidstone Cab Company'; large bag mounted on roof of car; bulging out of a boat-like box.
CU detail of different car; this one open without roof; has tube of gas that says 'Flugel' on side - looks like this thing is on running board; in BG a few children look. CU another detail.
The 2nd car driving down street toward camera - looks like normal vehicle; but has the little tube on side. Then; shot of same car (?) w/ a platform held up by posts w/ gas bag on top. Man in front cranking car; then he climbs into driver's seat; starts off.
A bit wacky. Inspired by airships?
