Period photos - Mike Costigan - 17-08-2017

I thought it might be a nice idea to start a thread on period photos; I have quite a few, many of which have probably never been seen by others, but I don't want this to be my thread - please feel free to add your own pics!

I'll start off with a couple of shots of a 1926 R-Type saloon ON 9354, probably taken when almost new:

Mike and Ian - your photos are exquisite, thanks for sharing.

I do hope your mother and aunt were okay in the latter pic Mike!

This is a photo of my fathers car, Roy he is on the left, with his best friend Norm. It is a 1928 Chummy, body manufactured by Melbourne Motor Body Works. The picture was taken sometime in the 40's. I still have the car, photo with my wife Maria.

When I first saw the 1940's photo I thought the guy on the right was the actor Eddie Marsan! I like your number plate!

This is my dad Albert in about 1932 with his first car.
