This photo appeared among the images in a recent eBay listing for HY 1833. The car is a comparatively rare Bristol registered 1931  OHC Morris Minor Tourer which has spent a large part of its life in the west country. Sadly, the car has been neglected in recent years and now requires a full restoration. The photo depicts a happy family holiday scene and looks to have been taken in the early seventies at what surely must be a recognisable seaside/port venue?

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.

Date: 4th July 1936 Venue: Donington Park Occasion: BRDC Nuffield Trophy Meeting. Standing alongside the Bellevue Garage entered MG ‘R’ Type (no.2) are Doreen Evans, Goldie Gardner (right), Kenneth Evans and (presumably), the partly obscured Denis Evans. Just 19 days later Doreen was married to American Allan Phipps. To discover much more about Doreen Evans, read Geoff Broadhead’s fascinating article in the just released 2020 edition of the Triple M Yearbook, whch can be ordered via this link.
