Moreton-in-Marsh, Glos mid-thirties

The large village of Moreton-in-March is located in the northern Cotswolds and has developed as a result of its location on a junction of the Fosse Way and what is now the A44, the main route from The Cotswolds to central Wales and the Welsh coast beyond. During the summer months the town suffers badly from traffic congestion although this was clearly not the case in the mid-thirties when this peaceful summer afternoon image was taken. The 1934 Minor Sliding-head Saloon, seen here parked in the shade of a tree with the arches of the Market Hall to be seen in the background, was first registered in the City of Worcester as FK 5927.
