    Wasps are a nuisance however they are also important pollinators; if we can it is better to co-exist.

    Car dealers

    There were a number of variants of these made with probably the most common being the Swallow body. I am not sure who made this one; the rear end looks as if it could be a fabric construction in which case it might be a Hoyal's body. I do like the ACE discs covering the wire wheels. From the Minor web site At least 24 separate British coachbuilding companies manufactured bodies for the Morris Minor chassis. A number of these companies produced more than one model, the most prolific being A.P. Compton (Arrow) with 8 models and a total of 6 different body styles. CMS, Gordon England, Maddox and Hoyal also included more than one Minor based model in their ranges. Those U.K. based companies known to have produced Minor Specials are listed below: Arrow (A. P. Compton) Boyd – Carpenter (B.C.) Brainsby (Trentlein) CMS (Coventry Motor Sundries) Colmore Depot Cunard (Stewart & Ardern) Duple Gordon England Hoyal Jarvis Jenson King Bros. (K. B. Special) Maddox Maltby Martin Marshalsea (Taunton) McEvoy Merlyn Mulliner Page Salmon & Sons. (Tickford) Sullivan SunRayn (Page & Johnson) Swallow

    Classic cars

    No not a Talbot checked that with those that know...……………….. Swift ? Argyll? there were so many small manufacturers then. Charles Rolls made 3 small cars like this before he got together with Royce. I will keep looking...………..

    Classic cars

    Well funny that it is on Talbot Street ………...the flairing where the radiator sits on the chassis rails is reminiscent of Talbots …………….. I am doing more research.

    I am a primary school teacher

    Shame about primaryschoolteacher ………. I agree. Ian123 you know what an odd world we live in where some will flock to diminish the nicest folk, others, willingly (though not always knowingly) will ignore the most appalling things . This is why we are led by a selfish elite and why we move towards Brexit.
