  • Description

    Unused / unissued material - Colour material.

    Stanstead, Essex.

    Various shots of cars, buses, and large lorries (Juggernauts) driving up and down the main road of Stanstead. The road is quite narrow and some of the very large trucks create traffic problems. Shots of traffic stuck in the street as it backs up, possibly from level crossing. More shots of large lorries going up and down.

    The most newly-registered vehicle seen in this fairly lengthy clip is a K-registered Austin - I'd therefore suggest that the clip originates from the 1971-73 date range.
