Now that people are getting their heads around the recent changes, it's time to have a post in the old style which has nothing to do with software updates.

I have seen this car if it is the 1929 Blower   (Blower No1 ? )

I think that if 1932 then this is after Bentley ceased trading so a privately owned vehicle

Sadly Birkin died in 1933 . There was a TV film "Full Throttle" with Rowan Atkinson playing Birkin.

I guess the liberty bodice arrangement was designed to keep clothing tight to the body in a busy cockpit............fetching isn't it?

If it's any use the caption says the Bentley was owned by the Hon. Dorothy Paget .

My Dad loved this era too..came home one day with two Trojan vans...wife wasn't happy!

I remember as a child seeing one of the Birkin family driving into the factory yard on Gladstone street forest fields in a bright red cord motor car with big chrome flexible exhaust sticking out of the bonnet  around the late 1940s has anyone any info on what the factory produced during the second world war  I remember long lines of American 6 wheeled wagons with the star on the bonnet all along Gladstone street   meeowed
