This documentary study compares traffic congestion in central Newcastle upon Tyne during the Christmas period in the early 1960s with the city centre in the late 1960s after urban re-development. Footage includes the busy shopping street of Northumberland Street, the main A1 England to Scotland road at the time, and the city centre around 1967 when pedestrian schemes and the start of the urban motorway programme demanded by city leader T Dan Smith were underway. This film is part of the Newcastle & District Amateur Cinematographers Association (ACA) collection.
