At the time of this film’s production, Luton’s population had already swelled to 120,000 inhabitants. This film captures some of the dynamic changes going on in the historic Bedfordshire town.

In addition to showing many key landmarks of the town, commentary tells of the significant events that have occurred in Luton’s cultural calendar over the years.
