IOTW no.689

By August 3, 2023IOTW

This press photo was taken alongside the A127, Southend Road near Gallows Corner, Romford on Sunday 7th July 1935 and shows the traffic streaming out of London towards that famous resort. Note also the numerous cyclists who have taken to the road that day. Of interest is the Wolseley Hornet Special (TG 6173) which was first registered in Glamorgan in 1933. The E.W. Hornet is fully laden with four occupants, all of whom look as if they are anticipating a good day out at the Essex resort. Although only two years old at the time, the car’s nearside front tyre is already bereft of any tread.
