PO 4843 1932 Minor Two-seater

There are six images of this late 1931 West Sussex registered car in the archive. All were purchased as a single lot on eBay some years ago and are uncaptioned on their reverse. Dating them is not an easy task, unless of course you are an historian of twentieth century female fashion. To the uneducated eye of the writer the photo could have been taken at any time between the late thirties and mid-fifties, with the word ‘Jerry’ painted on the bonnet perhaps indicating that it was toward the latter end of this period. Regardless of the date the sepia tones of this photo make for an appealing snapshot.
