Billed as the 1940s but more like 1937 or there abouts.

Talking Pictures TV.

Thu 19 Nov 20 18:30 As Time Goes By Made in the 1940s by The Austin Films Company. The 40s public of England congratulate themselves on their state of the art 'Aeroplanes' and 'Motor Cars' and encourage us to invest in an Austin!

Thanks Mike. Honestly, it was just a guess. That said, it couldn't have been earlier than the Queen Mary crossing the pond and not later than the start of WW2.

Thanks, noted, there have been some good short documentaties on there of late. Look out for one about Mercedes Benz too, the title mentions three-pointed star in it.
