Excellent documentary on town planning which explores the history of

Dunfermline and its possible future development; interesting that in 1948 they already knew there would be a Forth road bridge.

Backgrounds/street scenes - A looks slightly interesting?? D unusual - if anyone has any idea, there's a very slight glimpse of front side as it comes into shot - not enough to give ID, but might confirm existing idea.

Why not? In Germany it's usual, that such projects -just even the planning- takes years over decades. [:kiki] one or two human generations are nothing for that. I must dig about the record holder... I think, it's a railway-bridge somwhere in Bavaria or Hessia, whose first scheduling is from 1887...

D) has a look about that could be a Civil Defense van - There appears to be a lip around the front wheelarch and could the van be car-based?

The rear doors are very distinctive but for what use I cannot think. One idea is that it an American/Canadian donated van that was used as a mobile canteen in wartime and has been converted for normal van use. Quite a number were sent to the UK by voluntary groups in the US and Canada.

The bottom sections of the doors may be a drop down flip out step, to allow the staff to climb in without too much of a stretch, there is already a fixed step in the centre below.

^ Yes that was my initial thought but not conclusive.

However in looking at a contrast adjusted version it still could be two sets of long hinges with the doors divided right to top and bottom (with grilles at the top). The length of the vertical dividing line is not definite either way.

More shots of D in case ..... It intrigued me onscreen for looking unusual. If plate is AFS, it's mid-36, but too blurry to be sure.

Thanks dsl, looks like the lip on the front wheel-arch was a reflection.

My thoughts are that it was almost certainly a pre-1940 saloon car at one time with the van body bodged on the chassis during wartime for CD use. Sadly I think there is no chance of finding the make of car.
