Post Vintage  Archive Factory Photographs



1930's Archive Factory Photos


Over 70 Factory Photographs from the 1930's have recently been loaned to to club for copying. None of them have been seen before, nor, so far as we are aware, have any been published elsewhere.


Lots of these shots are of unregistered cars, taken in and around the factory grounds and many feature models in bang up to date fashions.  


You can see a selection of the Post-Vintage photos below, just click on them to see a larger version, remembering to press "Back" on your browser to come back here.  As these cars are all to totally original specifications they are a useful guide to anyone restoring one of these cars:
