1930 Minor Coachbuilt Saloon GJ 4294

What is a London registered Minor Coachbuilt Saloon doing in the Cumbrian (formerly Cumberland) coastal town of Whitehaven some 330 miles from home? This postcard image was taken in the town’s main street, which runs down to the harbour, at 5:20 PM on an overcast day. Was this the car of a London based  commercial traveler or that of a family man on holiday in the far north west of England? The year was 1931 .
