Very early Chummy on postcard
#1
Very early Chummy on a postcard. Currently on eBay - but a tad expensive: https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/324974588585?...nl%3Dmkcid
Never mind - here it is cleaned up. Click the image for a higher resolution copy then click again - the detail is pretty decent.

The registration dates the car to January/February 1924.

It’s very nice to have the comparison — the softer look of the road back in the twenties, the way it feathers into the verge, against the much harder looking tarmac and sharply defined pavement. 
I sort of like the way it used to be.

It is intriguing to see how buildings survive in the UK. brick is not a hazard and few wooden. As a visitor the token roundabouts were surprising. An insignificant blotch of faded paint makes much difference to how traffic on right has to be treated. Here near always have a raised centre and signs .

Wonderful postcard image - taken from a glass plate photograph. 

So much better than the interminable phone pictures (from which no one can ever locate the picture they must show you  Smile )
