7V on the left, long wheelbase 817T ? On the right.

Both these vehicles, and various others, suggest 1935 date for the film is wrong. 1937 at least, maybe later.

With no headlight visible I think, the earlier Fordson BBE on the left (not 7V).
On the right 1937 Fordson Model 79, 2 or 3-ton truck?

One of the many Clyde ferries at the time which are now defunct. Footage shows a double-decker frame with vehicles on top level.
