Portmadoc Postcards

These two postcards, both taken in the Thirties, depict what could be considered mundane views of the north western Welsh town of Portmadoc – now Porthmadog. One being taken in Station Road, the other in the town’s High Street. They are at least of some interest to those of us here in that both photos include a Minor. The 1932 Two-seater (FM 7086) parked at a jaunty angle in Station Road was first registered in Chester in late 1931, a town some 70 miles distant. The registration of the 1934 Minor Saloon is indistinct but with around 80,000 Minors on Britains roads at this time they would have been a very familiar site in every town across the country.

Triple M corner no.150

By Triple M corner

The Triple M series of MG’s all belong to a family of models that commenced with the 1929 MG Midget and continued through to the mid-thirties via a long string of four and six cylinder OHC engined cars that forged the marques identity.

J. B. Carver was a young Oxford undergraduate who took part in a series of national trials* between 1930 and 1932. His car of choice was a 1930 London registered MG Midget GC 5505. This Bill Brunell photo was taken on 12th December 1931 during the MCC’s London-Gloucester Trial. Despite requiring assistance on this hill(?) Carver gained a Silver Medal.

(*Carver took part in the 1930 & 31 MCC London Gloucester, the 1932 Sunbac ‘Colmore’, and the 1930 & 31 Inter Varsity Trials)
