    Unissued / unused material - dates and locations unclear or unknown.*

    Previously listed as "SHOPS"

    Colour item.

    Travelling shots of busy shopping street in large town / small city. No clues as to where this might be except that the double-decker buses are blue and white and that quality of light suggests it might be by the sea.

    *Amendment February 2012: A visitor to the website has provided some more information. This is Brighton and the shopping centre is Churchill Square.

    Up until the 01:02 timepoint, this clip shows a journey up North Street in Brighton. (I've confirmed this by taking a "Virtual" walk up the street on Google maps, many of the buildings remain the same today). After 01:02 it remains unclear exactly where the journey takes us.

    The latest this film can possibly have been made is 1973 - at 00:29 we see an old "Essoldo" bingo club, which were all sold off and renamed in 1973.

    Wow! Thanks for narrowing that date range down with an impressive investigation!

    note the derelict land of Huntingdon church on the right as the bus travels back down North Street.

    At 1:02 the view switches to very close by: Travelling east on Western Road (from the bottom of Regent Hill) with the camera facing south. The old Churchill Square shopping centre then becomes visible.
