    At 01:50, a street sign for "Cavendish Square" is seen.

    The vehicle approaching the camera at 03:48 is a delivery van for Heal & Son.

    The location at 04:31 is Manchester Square.

    Narrowing down the clip's current date range, the sight of the Heinkel Kabine microcar at 04:46 dates dates the footage as being from at least 1956.
