1932 or 33 Minor 5cwt Van

This image is currently for auction on eBay with a starting price of £150, a sum significantly greater than the cost of the van when new.

The vehicle in question belongs to an electrical retail business namely J H Rostromin of Mumbles (near Swansea, Wales) who were agents for the Marconi P.A. broadcasting equipment seen on demonstration in the photo. Note the unmetalled  road surface, while the bunting seen at the top of the image may signify that the equipment was being used to make announcements for a street event or something similar.
