First, we see snow in Haringey, then great shots of Piccadilly Circus and the Christmas lights. More neon follows, including of a Golden Egg cafe and Talk Of The Town nightclub, before daylight footage of the exterior of EJ Churchill, a gun maker in Charing Cross. General shots of 60s furnishings, fashion and furniture are also worth seeing. The film was shot by Haringey Davis family and found and donated by the new owner of the Davis family house.
