Bonnets and caps c.1925

By HobbitDave
Thanks kindly for all the clicks and comments and funny quips on my old Ford model T photo yesterday.
Here is one more in that series, which was passed in to me. Possibly family but no writing on the back. The car I think is an Austin 16 tourer from1925. These old car photos can be a nice diversion when it is cold and snowy outside. The original photo was badly faded.

Fascinating to think who they were and the occasion when the photo was taken.

Nice when you could park at the side of the road and take a photo! Other motorists and the occasional Bobby on the beat would probably have joined in. A nice friendly feeling 🙂

Fabulous image Dave. It must have been so special to have a day out in your car in that era.

Reminds me of the series Peaky Blinders. They wore the exact same clothing. Great old find Dave. Debs

You've got me going through my grandmothers old photos to make a book for my kids. Does take a lot of time.

They certainly seemed proud to be photographed against their pride and joy in those days! A fine presentation, Dave 😃👍
