I wonder why the wheel spats weren't put back on. Looks like the car has been restored.

That's because they are further away. No point in film before 1880 as people were to small to see. The world has not got smaller, people have got bigger and nearer as there are more of them. It all makes sense if you watch Father Ted on holiday with Dougal.

Does this mean I was born in the 1930s? Jeez, I know I am getting on but I did not realise I was the same age as Dad!
