Several L/Ss of the GPO / Post Office Tower (nowadays known as the British Telecom Tower). Several shots show the great views from the revolving restaurant at the top of the tower. People are seen eating in the restaurant (run by Butlin’s – really!) and looking out at the view.
Pathe cameraman David Allan is seen looking out of the window; a Pathe couple (named in paperwork as Graham and Mary Ann – she is in lots of late 60s Colour Pics) sit eating a table. Cameraman Stan Goozee’s feet are seen as he steps from the revolving restaurant to the ‘core’. Waiters serve food; good shots of restaurant food of this era – looks quite swanky.
M/S of the top of the tower, zooming in for C/U of the section where the restaurant is situated. What a shame this part of the tower is no longer open to the public!
Note: for search purposes – Butlins.
