An early thirties postcard depiction of Preston, not the large town in Lancashire, but a small village in Dorset some 275 miles south. The car that is about to pass the village store is either a 1930 or 1931 season Morris Minor OHC Coachbuilt Saloon, although unfortunately the vehicle’s registration markings are indecipherable.

Triple M corner no.211

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.

Following on from last week’s TMC image, here is a close up shot of the same MG J3 Midget (JB 2268) photographed en route during the 1933 Alpine Rally. W.E. Belgrave and his co-driver look remarkably refreshed and under-dressed for imminent competition, which might indicate that the driving for the day had yet to be undertaken.
