Two Standard 8 Tourers

2 Standard 8 Tourers, photo submitted by David Liggins of Kettering

Photograph taken at Overstone Park, Northamptonshire, 1947. It shows (left) Betty Ridout (now Betty Hopkins) and (Right) Oliver Lovell and his daughter Eileen Lovell (now Eileen Liggins)

Eileen bought her car new in June 1947 for £400 and passed her test  in it in September 1947. Betty bought her car earlier that year.

Betty was bridesmaid to Eileen at her wedding in 1948 and both ladies are well and still driving.

My sincere congratulations, ladies on the 60th anniversary of this photograph. I can just make out that the car on the right has a "L" plate on it. I hope that you are pleased to see yourselves here so many years on.
