  • The expensive shops in a famous arcade near Piccadilly were just opening.
  • [00:19.29]
  • At this time of the morning,
  • [00:21.37]
  • the arcade was almost empty.
  • [00:24.44]
  • Mr. Taylor, the owner of a jewellery shop was admiring a new window display.
  • [00:30.78]
  • Two of his assistants had been working busily since 8 o'clock and had only just finished.
  • [00:37.97]

  • [00:48.23]
  • Mr. Taylor went back into his shop.
  • [00:52.07]
  • The silence was suddenly broken when a large car,
  • [00:56.06]
  • with its headlights on and its horn blaring, roared down the arcade.
  • [01:01.74]
  • It came to a stop outside the jeweller's.

  • [01:43.01]
