As you may or may not know I have tens of billions of old negs and photos, dating back to the 1920s. Many of these are taken in locations such as Ayrshire, Lanarkshire, London, possibly Glasgow and the USA. Here's one of the car photos. Would love to know what kind of car it is. I've no idea of the location although it looks to me like the Scottish Borders or Perthshire. Date - probably before 1970-ish.
Mac - It might be a c1927 Vauxhall, perhaps an 'R' Type, but I couldn''t swear to it.
If you closely at the image, specifically the top of the radiator I think you can just make out the recess in it near the shoulder that follows back along the bonnet tapering away - a trade mark of this period of Vauxhalls.
You can take the man out of Maryhill, but you can't take Maryhill out of the man.
BT and Fireman... Thanks very much for that. There are several shots to hand specifically involving cars/ trucks, but some are taken in America. Interestingly the American number plate in one pic incorporates the date (1928) of the car.
Don't want to saturate this thread with ancient pics so I'll probably post them intermittently.
Gentlemen! You are very kind. I shall get saturating as soon as I can. Hoping to get the images cleaned up a lot for my FAA website so progress may be a little slower than anticipated. Quality is very varied and some are almost unpublishable, but just good enough to be worth sharing - the pics themselves span 50 years (like me) and some of the very oldest are a bit scratched and battered (like me). I'll see what I can do though.
Thanks Fireman. As a matter of interest the pic was taken in Detroit where I believe there may have been a car factory. Chevrolet's one of the very few American brands I've heard of so I'll go with that.
This one below is closer to home. Shanks & McEwan truck at Carnbroe and I'm estimating the date as late 1940s. Is this a Bedford?
