1930 or 31 Minor Coachbuilt Saloon

Another eBay sourced snapshot this one probably from the forties or fifties. The car is heavily laden with additional lighting with two (perhaps three) extra fog/spot lights to the front, to no doubt further overload the lighting circuit. This period was infamous for autumnal and early winter smogs which made driving a very risky business in those conditions. The two individuals in the photograph are probably father and son, period touches being the father’s trilby hat and the son’s college scarf and pipe. The embellishment of a contrasting painted coachline further adds to the clues indicating that the photo was taken later in the car’s life.
