12 minute promo film from BFI DVD set - British Transport Films Volume Ten: London on the Move
[Image: lotmcovercompx2.jpg]
about London Transport's 200 canteens (from proper restaurants to cupboards with a kettle, including mobile trucks/vans) for bus and tube staff. Not exactly thrill-a-minute stuff, but interesting in its way for a logistics and operations task which was undertaken seriously within LT activities. They don't spell it out, but there's an implication that this might have provided the only opportunity for their staff to get a proper meal every day during 1950s austerity/shortages.
