A policeman stands on point duty at the corner of Commercial Road in London whilst trams, motor lorries, and horse-drawn delivery carts go past. Horses and carts continued to be used long after other, newer, forms of transport were introduced. There is also a poster adverting 'Varsity Flannels' for Gardiner & Co., 'Sea & Colonial Outfitters'.
