A recent eBay find, this snapshot reveals very little. The Minor is a 1929 Tourer model, that much is deduced from the presence of a ‘Morris’ script on the radiator, an item the Minor wore for just that first season. The design of  the tax disc on the car’s windscreen indicates that the photo was taken prior to 1961 (velologists may know more) while almost nothing can be determined from the driver’s attire. It seems most likely that the photo was taken in the thirties as the car’s paintwork appears to be in excellent condition and the Dunlop triple stud tyres look almost new. Is that a horn on the scuttle or something else?
