Old Bill (British Pathe)
View of horse-drawn trams by the sea front on the Isle of Man. An 1896 Manx electric tram is seen being repainted at the British Transport Commission in Clapham. Archive footage shows 'Old Bill', a preserved London General B-type doubledecker bus that served as a troop carrier in France during World War One. A modern day RTL class Leyland Titan PD2 is followed by Old Bill, which is then seen stopping next to an AEC K-type.
