    "M/S of bus reversing over mattress" - it isn't a bus, it's a Model CL3 Albion Claymore pantechnicon. (Many thanks to Ian Maclean of The Albion Club for identifying it).

    From the livery of the vehicle we can safely assume that the location for the filming was a Slumberland factory!

    Although currently dated 1970-79 this footage was actually shot much earlier, probably in the late 1950s or early 1960s.
