1930 Minor Fabric Saloon

Another eBay sourced period snapshot, this one of a 1930 Hertfordshire registered Minor Fabric Saloon UR 7203. Despite the small enprint being of poor quality  sufficient detail is visible to establish that a small pump-type extinguisher is attached to the running board and that the man is cradling a pipe with a very long stem. Unusually the photograph was taken in the winter at a time when many cars were ‘laid-up’. Perhaps this man was a commercial traveller?
