A time to reflect…

By Headline News

Peter Field from Nelson, New Zealand forwarded this image of his 1931 Morris Minor Two-seater (AT 6795) to the Network in the spring of 2017. Unfortunately, it was misfiled and has only just resurfaced. So apologies to Peter and far better late, than never…

IOTW no.612


Registered in London in December 1931 this 1932 season Morris Minor Sliding-head Saloon (GW 5945) was nowhere near the metropolis when this photograph was taken. One almost bald tyre might indicate that the photo was taken some time after the car’s manufacture and while the tax disc would tell us a lot more precisely than guesswork, the all important date is not legible. The photograph was probably taken at waist level on a bellows box camera using either 120 or 620 film.

Triple M corner no.251

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.

For TMC no.251 we have another image from the 1932 RAC International Tourist Trophy  Race which took place on 20th August 1932. Here Eddie Hall’s MG C Type Midget is seen running alongside Dundonald Station as passengers leave the train. Although a bad day for the MG Midgets (just two finishers from the nine cars that started the race), Hall went on to finish 3rd overall behind Whitcroft’s and Eyston’s Rileys.
