UN 1579

Although the quality of this image leaves much to be desired it does portray a very early Morris Minor Tourer. UN 1579 was first registered in Denbigh in the autumn of 1928 very soon after the first Minors started leaving the Cowley plant. The reverse of the image has (another) one word caption, “Cardiff”.  The K2 phoneboxes in the background don’t help to date the photograph as they were first introduced in 1924, while the cobbled roadways may indicate that the timing was earlier rather than later in the Thirties decade.
