This week Alan’s Sepia Saturday post shows the front cover of a 1930 Chevrolet brochure, so I wondered if I had some appropriate vehicle photos in Great Granny’s album – I thought I might have used them all in a previous Cars post (including a car made in Scotland by women for women) and found this
This is the Galloway saloon made by women, but look – curtains in the back! More information on the Galloway can be found on on the Old Classic Car website. Noted on the back of the photo is “Hovingham Sept 1928″ – Alan’s neck of the woods.
This vintage tourer seems to have been just the job for touring as here we have it again, this time the note on the back says “The Trossachs Road 21/22 Sep 1928″
I wonder if the driver is the same man – he’s wearing plus 4′s as in the previous photo, which makes me think he was a huntin’ shootin’ type. The trousers remind me of a corny Scottish postcard from my childhood, which they probably still sell today. It showed a cartoon of a hunter proudly returning from the hill with a stag which he had killed. Someone asks “Did you shoot him in the Trossachs?” and he replies “No, right between the eyes”. GROAN!
For other similar posts, nip along to Sepia Saturday and see what’s going on, or why not post one of your own? It doesn’t have to be Sepia, just share one of your old photos with us.
PS: Wordpress have just congratulated me on my 50th post – have I really gassed on so much?
