    This piece is much more recent than the current suggested date of 1950-59.

    Firstly, the slate in the early seconds credits the cameraman as being Mike Dodds. His working credits on imdb only begin in 1972.

    Secondly, at 00:06 we see a man in a leather jacket - it's very much more 1970s than 1950s.

    Similarly all of the products seen on the table at 00:09 are much more 70s than 50s.

    Finally, the kids' clothes and hairstyles from 00:13 onwards appear to be 1970s fashions.

    This footage was shot at the same time as clips 3348.11, 3349.03 and 3347.03. The second of those clips details the material as having been filmed in October 1971.
