    If you look at the document the lady is photocopying at 00:54, the paperwork bears the name of "Remington Rand Ltd".

    Remington Rand were the makers of the Remflex copying machine seen here. They were based at 1-19 New Oxford Street, London, so the clip's current location requires a very slight change.
