Actually I think the footage is more likely around 32/33 as most of the AA trucks seen have the 82B cab which came out in England several months later than the USA June 30 changeover date from the 82A . The van at 42 secs would have been very new in 1930 .

John in sunny morning lovely high pressure weather on the way but no model A, Policeman says "is your journey really essential ???" Suffolk County England .

Notice how every horn sounds the same as every other horn? And the traffic noise is the same dull roar? I'm thinking maybe the sound track was dubbed in later.

Thank you John for the great YOUTUBE. I am going to show that to my Grand Children, old cars with a mix of horse drawn wagon and people pulling hand carts.
