If things go according to plan, by mid-May (in England) we could all legally re-commence using our cars. By then, the best of the spring blossom will be on display, the days will be much longer and the sun will have considerably more warmth than at present. This 2008 photo was taken in the leafy Surrey suburb of Ewell, and has captured the Morris Minor Two-seaters, owned at that time by Alister Reid (UXG 289) and Mike Cameron (HX 3252), basking in the spring sunshine. In just ten weeks time we could be doing the same…(photo Alister Reid)

These two photos of WN 4621, a 1932 Swansea registered Morris Minor Two-seater were scanned from small negative images found on the internet (with apologies for the poor quality). It wasn’t until they were inverted to become positives that it was apparent that the photos had been taken in the late fifties or sixties. A check in the Harry Edwards archive revealed that the car was known to the Morris Register, his note referencing Network member, Ken Martin. Perhaps Ken can provide more detail?

Triple M corner no.218

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.

The Scottish Motor Transport Company ran a fleet of buses across Scotland and also published the SMT Magazine throughout the thirties in conjunction with the LNER and LMS railway companies. The magazines were effectively travelogues, full of articles relating to places of interest and holiday destinations throughout the United  Kingdom; the magazine’s purpose to encourage would be holiday makers to use their services. Strangely perhaps, the magazine’s pages are populated with advertisements from car manufacturers and motor traders encouraging the readership to buy cars, effectively dissuading them to use the facilities offered by the magazine’s publishers. However, SMT had this base covered as they also owned a car dealership in Edinburgh. This very late MG Midget advertisement appears in the January 1932 edition and depicts a metal panelled model illustrated by Harold Connolly. Does anyone know of a later dated MG ‘M’ Type Midget advertisement?
