Cine film taken from upstairs of 56 Cowley Road of Tyndale Road in about 1972. Not sure what is going on, but the vehicles are 3 wheeler "invalid" cars, Invercars. There seems to be some kind of demonstration. Frank Twining's bottle filled window display can be seen along with a view up the Cowley Road towards the plane. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MPDBNynoEg0
