Standard Little 12 on Jersey
Photo of a rare Standard Little 12
I have recently bought a scanner so at last I am able to send you a copy of a period photo lent to me for copying some years ago by a friend at home in Jersey.
In the past the States of Jersey Motor Taxation department used to publish an annual booklet for sale to the general public with all details of vehicles registered in Jersey along with the keepers name and address, this of course would not be allowed today under the Data Protection Act.
The booklet of registered motor vehicles of 1934 gives the keepers name of this Standard as Miss Marjorie De Gruchy of 2 St Kilda Villas, Bagot Road, St.Saviour, Jersey. I can only assume that this is Miss De Gruchy in the photo. The car is believed to be a 1932/3 Standard Little Twelve.
I think you are right Steve -
So, it was a rare car in 1933 and consequently much rarer in 2009. Has anyone even seen one, or own one today?
