Doors, boot and bonnet were ally up until mid 1962. Correction, they were actually Birmabright.

The rover that was before the sd1 I think it was the p6 had an aluminium bonnet and boot, if only all the panels were alloy, the rear wings used to rust away terrible.

My uncle worked behind the bar in the Queens Hotel when they were trying to get enough money together to move from Clifton and buy a house on Bread and Lard Island.

Yes, the Star Inn was always Shippoes.  Funny, I know it wasn't exclusive but I always associated white-painted pubs as Shipstones. Nice bustling picture Ian, not strictly 'my end' of Arky. Just to the left out of shot was where I had my driving lessons, Trent it was called I think. Quite a few Medders folk would have learnt to drive there. Just to the right past the canopy was Jon Stoppards pawnbrokers, you can just see his balls hanging out the front lol. Next along the Gibsons factory with it's 'Woollaton' brand which always seemed to me to be a spelling mistake. Two of my haunts, Army Surplus stores just a bit further up and then of course the Mecca that was Selectadisc, (two shops at the time of the picture).

 

One thing I'd forgotten was there were no parking restrictions, you could stop where you liked!
