GY 8404

This image was scanned from one of two glass plates recently purchased via eBay. The 1932 Morris Minor Two-door Saloon (GY 8404) was first registered in London in June of that year. The photograph was almost certainly taken in the late forties or early fifties, as the toy Jeep is emblazoned with the motif ‘GB 1946’ on its bonnet. The car heading-up this unusual four vehicle queue is an elegant mid to late thirties Lagonda sports saloon while the last mode of transport in the line-up is a self-propelled, arm powered, foot steered go-cart. The Minor survived at least until August 1990 according to the DVLA.  More on this car in the next IOTW edition.
