Footage filmed by Michael Gillings, a local amateur film-maker, at the London to Brighton Commerical Vehicle Run in 1968.


A Historic Commercial Vehicle Club sign encouraged enquiries. Crowds have gathered at the finish line, to watch the vintage fire engines, goods vehicles, buses, traction engines and lorries arrive at Madeira Drive. A table of trophies is laid out. Visitors inspect the preserved vehicles. The End.
