Stephan K: Is the car a Singer? Anybody have more info?
The car is a Morris 8, I had my first car in 1958, it was a 1935Morris 10, but a Saloon (Sedan) version.Another interesting picture is the sign post showing thedistance and directions to the next towns.The very next year all those sign posts were removed asDunkirk had happened and the threat of invasion was feared.
This is a real treat for me on several scores, I am now 87 so in 1939 I wouldbe 12 years old, old enough to remember that year immediately beforethe war broke out, preparations were already under way , men were being called to the colours if they were in the Territorial Army.
My first serious camera I bought in 1941, it was an Ensign Relflex camera,took 120 size film. I did try some Dufaycolour film, it was expensive andthe processing took over 3 months due to the wartime conditions.The slides were very dark, probably because I under exposed them.
The other interesting thing is the Morris 8, my first car was a 1935 Morris 10,a saloon model, it had been stored during the war years, I bought it in 1955,but it looked very much like the convertible shown in these excellent andhistoric photos of yours.
tallguy600: OMG, that's impossibly ugly! How could they release those pictures of a product destined to never ever see the public?
My first thoughts, too.
He looks good, I am that age (86) and that same type of stocky build,can never get anything to fit, and can't afford to get bespoketailoring.
A gadgeteer's paradise toy, looks great.
A nice upgrade feature.
Stop using the wife's hand lotion and sandpaperyour hands.
It would be nice to see some images before all this hyper carpingfrom the resident moaners.
