1930 Minor Semi-Sports GK 3661

Another eBay find. This wartime snapshot of London registered Minor Semi-Sports GK 3661 was taken when the car was at least ten years old. The blackout cover over the offside headlamp confirms the period while the nearside lamp had been removed completely (not an unusual practice at that time), while the hood was also missing.   It’s pure guesswork as to the location, although the grazing sheep and windmill might indicate somewhere on the South Downs.

Thanks to Mark Berry from Windmill World the location has subsequently been identified as Burton Dassett in Warwickshire.
