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.

Not much on that bit now though, Queens and the old bank building on the corners. Soccer City wasn't there long as I recall, next door to the Navy Club.

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.
