    A car is lowered to an underground garage from the front garden of a suburban house.

  • Description

    Hampstead, London.

    M/S of a car driving up to the suburban home of Colonel Westland Wright. The woman driving parks on a canopied contraption on the front garden., then gets out and goes into the house. Indoors, she turns a switch; outside we see the car slowly being lowered underground, until the top of the concrete canopy is level with the ground.
