'Driving Along The Great North Road' a BR (blatant repost) but what a BR it is .. filmed in 1939 just before The War and well before any motorway's had been built. There were few routes north available and this film starts off the journey in London where the opening scenes show a Blimp or Barrage Balloon in the sky over London.
everything about this film, the vehicles, the people the roads the street furniture, the towns and villages tells it's own story - a picture of a beautiful island that was once a beautiful place to live...... and still is, thankfully.
