very nice Dave, it does show the rexine covered rear backrest, same as mine. I am interested in what appears to be a back window hanging curtain that is opened by sliding to the right. Perhaps those with better photo reading skills can shed some light? Cheers Russell

An Austin Seven on the 1930 Inter-Varsity Trial; I believe a Boyd Carpenter:

Here is a photo I found while looking through my late Fathers photos.
It was his first car purchased for £7, he sold his camera for that amount to make the purchase.
The photo was taken about 1947, my sister would have been about 3 or 4.
Does anyone know what model this would be or where it was registered?

Although the car doesn't seem to be afflicted with the same problem.

Being a Leeds lad, I didn't recognise it as a Leeds registration.
